Stack the Odds: Yom Kippur
Thank you Harry Rothenberg of Partners in Torah for the very inspiring advice.
Lawyer Rothenberg works with Project Inspire, an outreach (Kiruv) program whose motto is "Inspiring Yourself by Inspire Others." One of the greatest attributes that Hashem wants to see from us is Ahavas Yisroel, love of our fellow Jew -- I have mentioned it many times. If you can provide help to another Jew, especially in the way of teaching another, it is a big miztvah that Hashem looks upon very favorably. Reaching out to someone to bring him or her closer to Hashem brings you closer and is a very big plus for you going into Yom Kippur. It also makes the up-coming Geula, redemption even more meaningful for you and the individuals you help.
Go to Project Inspire. Kiruv.com for more information. You can sign up to be a mentor for someone who doesn't have learning 1 on 1. This is done by phone, Skype, etc and is very worthwhile. Once again, what you can do to help others is looked upon by Hashem as a very positive effort.
