  • Confessions of a Jewish Atheist

  • Vidui (Final Confession)

    January 21, 2015 | 3:00 am

    As I have sat with so many people as they were dying, I never felt comfortable listening to or reading, the traditional, standard Vidui, as it is.

    It is so dark, and so filled with gloom, that not one of the patients I have shared the vidui with - I believe- felt comforted, felt...

    On Rosh Hashanah it is inscribed,
    And on Yom Kippur it is sealed.

    Who shall live and who shall die,
    Who shall reach the end of his days and who shall not,

    These are nervous-making times.

    No, I'm not talking about the damage the capital campaign may do to you, or -- at my temple, anyway -- whether you'll find a parking place for services, which is enough to make anyone want to reach for a Xanax.

  • First Woman Heads Reform Conference

    By Abby Cohn
