Achas L'Maala V'Sheva L'Matta - Revisited

Parshas Acharei Mos is coming up and it goes without saying that it holds a very dear place in my heart right there alongside the other 53 parshiot. This is because this parsha holds in it the source of the title of my magnum opus - One Above and Seven Below a.k.a. Achas L'Maala V'Sheva L'Matta.

In honor of this special occasion, I will present a golden oldie (or a summer rerun, depending on how you look at it), which is a repost of my August 20, 2008 post which explains the connection between the service on Yom Kippur and the main premise of One Above and Seven Below. Yes, this is one of the "Important Posts" that I have featured year-round on the sidebar of this blog in the section designated for important posts, but now that the parsha is upon us, it carries much more significance, as the pasuk says in Mishlei (15:23): ודבר בעתו מה טוב

So, here is the post in iPaper:
