Our Cantor's High Holy Day Drash: Kol Nidre, 5775

© 2014 Linda Hirschhorn

In another 10 days we will gather for Kol Nidre - the evening service of Yom Kipppur that is given that name by the opening prayer that launches us into 24 hours of fasting and asking for forgiveness. In preparation, I thought it might be instructive to review some of its history and some of the concepts we encounter in KN.
