Teen Beit Midrash: Kol Nidre: Empathy or Empty Promises? – led by Alex Weisz
Kol Nidre, the opening prayer of Erev Yom Kippur, is a sweeping annulment of all of our vows to God – not from the previous year, but for the year to come. Certainly the High Holy Days emphasize the compassionate nature of Divine Justice, nevertheless this seems one step too far. Our new Director of Youth Education and Programming Alex Weisz and the teens will walk through one of the most controversial passages in Jewish liturgy together to determine whether Kol Nidre is radically empathetic or sets us up for a year without accountability for our actions.
