In Awe of Kol Nidre

Stained glass window front at Chicago Loop Synagogue

My essay on Kol Nidre was published a year ago, and on the eve of another Yom Kippur it is as relevant to me as ever, so I am sharing it again. I am still happy that I managed to write about faith and to put my take on this iconic incantation in words. That was definitely a milestone for me.

Wishing all my Jewish family, friends and readers a meaningful Yom Kippur and an easy fast.


  1. Thank you for the essay link.

    I'm struck by how different this stained glass window is compared to what I'm used to.
