Are We Truly Sorry?

The Hebrew word for forgiveness is S’licha. It is the word we use to apologize and ask forgiveness at the same time. This time of year, we should be doing a lot of requesting of forgiveness for the wrongs we have done to others and to God. Though the preparation for the High Holidays began a couple of weeks ago at the beginning of the month of Elul, it takes on added significance beginning Saturday night September 12th with the beginning of the recitation of the Selichot, our prayers asking for forgiveness. We begin reciting them on Saturday night and continue reciting them early each morning through Yom Kippur. It is a chance to verbalize that which we have been hopefully been thinking in

A little humor for our time

A little humor for our time. During this trying pandemic it is often difficult to find a bit of levity and cheer. My friend and comedian Joel Chasnoff put together this new version of the Vidui/Ashamnu prayer that we recite on Yom Kippur. Enjoy and Shabbat Shalom.
