Yom Kippur: Confession and Atonement

Posted by Meir Schweiger on October 9, 2016
Topics: Pardes from Jerusalem, Yom Kippur

Confession is a major part of the Yom Kippur service. What is the source for this practice and what is the relationship between confession and atonement? In this podcast, Rabbi Meir Schweiger examines a number of possible resolutions to these questions, which will hopefully make the Yom Kippur experience more meaningful. Please note that there is a source sheet to accompany this podcast. See elmad.pardes.org to download it.
