the משל from the Brisker Rav zt"l

He explained the different periods of the ימים נוראים starting with, אלול,ר"ה, עשי"ת and finally יום כיפור with the following משל.

There once was a wealthy merchant trying to smuggle across the border a large quantity of merchandise.

He hired a professional smuggler who knew the route and
best time to cross the border not to get caught.

The plan was to load the wagon with the merchandise
weeks before. The wagon driver will hang around in the
forest near the border and wait for the smuggler to give
him the signal when to cross the border. He would then rush his galloping horses and cross the border.

The merchant starts worrying and can't sleep at night as soon as they load the wagon

The smuggler worries and can't sleep at night after he gives the signal to cross.

The wagon driver worries when he gets within a hundred feet from the border.

The young boy who does the loading and unloading is only worried after the guards approach him with the guns pointing in his face.

After getting caught all are worried except for the horses. They are even happy that they can have a rest now.

די פערד זארגן זיך נישט, זיי פרייען זיך
Horses,are not worried they are happy

והמבין יבין

  1. Shulchan Aruch, Chelek Orach Chaim, Siman 428, Sif 1:

    [Our calendar is fixed so] Yom Kippur cannot have its daytime on: Tuesday, Sunday or Friday.

    Beth Yosef, Chelek Orach Chaim, Siman 605:

    quotes the Rashba in a responsa who, after mentioning the custom prevalent in his city, writes:

    “And I have heard that Rabbeinu Hai was asked and said that they observe this, but with all this I prevented this custom.

    And it is written in Orchot Chaim that the Ramban forbids it because of Darchei HaEmori”.

    Kapparot is not consistent with Jewish teachings and law. Repentance and charity can be better accomplished by using money instead of a slaughtered chicken.”

    Why should we, specifically on the eve of the holy day of Yom Kippur, be cruel to animals for no reason, and slaughter them without mercy, just as we are to request compassion from the Living G_d?
