Kavanot: Personal Meditations to Prepare Oneself for PrayerWhat an extraordinary gift it is — what a blessing, what a miracleto have been raised by imperfect parents who did their very best;to share our life with a partner no more flawed than we are;to count as a friend one who understands and accepts us most of the time.How brave, how hard it is to be “good enough” in our ties to one another: togive, even when we’re exhausted; to love faithfully;to receive with grace the love imperfectly offered to us.Can this night set us free from the tyranny of expectations? Can this nightrelease us from fantasies impossible to fulfill?We resolve this night to embrace the practice of forgiveness:to forgive others who fail to be all we hoped they would be;to forgive ourselves when we fall short of what others hoped we would be.We declare this night that we will cherish goodness wherever it is found, andopen ourselves to the gifts that are before us.— adapted from Rabbi Lewis KamrassIThe most beautiful thing that one can do is forgive a wrong.— Rokei-ach, an ethical-mystical book by Eleazer ben Judah of WormsIMany people were raised to believe that one should only say good things to,and about, God. Many were taught a kind of piety that forced them into adenial of their own feelings and dishonesty toward God. Our experiences ofGod sometimes lead us to confused and even negative feelings. Suffering, thepain of losing a loved one, disappointment, and the existential experience ofmortality all weigh heavily upon us and sometimes we’re not pleased withGod. But if we are limited to pious expressions of praise and gratitude whenwe are feeling quite the opposite, in what sense is our prayer — indeed, ourrelationship with God — honest?The Babylonian Talmud [Yoma 69b] offers us a text that addresses thisissue. The Rabbis point out that Moses said: The great, mighty, and awesome1

God (Deuteronomy 10:17). Then came Jeremiah who thought: Strangers aredestroying God’s Temple. Where then are God’s awesome deeds? ThusJeremiah prayed, O great and mighty God . . . (Jeremiah 32:18), omitting theattribute “awesome.” Then Daniel came and thought: Strangers areenslaving God’s children. Where then are God’s mighty deeds? Thus Danielprayed, O great and awesome God (Daniel 9:4), omitting the attribute“mighty.” But how could Jeremiah and Daniel omit something establishedby Moses? Rabbi Eleazar said: Since they knew that the Holy One, blessedbe God, insists on truth, they were unable to say any false things about God.Rabbi Eleazar is teaching us that sincere prayer demands complete honesty.God can see through false piety, even if some people cannot.— Rabbi A. ScheinermanI IFor Those Who Wear A Tallit:My soul, bless Adonai.Adonai, my God, You are very great.You are clothed in beauty and splendor, wrapped in a robe of light.You unfurl the heavens like the curtains of a tent.—from Psalm 104Kl« n ,Epi«d Ÿl¡ ï§i ,dŸ KExÄ,eiz̈Fv§ n A§ Ep«ẄC§ w xy ̀ ,ml̈Frd̈.zvi S A sH r z§ d l§ Ep«Ëv e§Baruch atah, Adonai Eloheinu,Melech ha-olam, asher kid'shanub'mitzvotav, v'tzivanu l'hitateifbatzitzit.Blessed are You, Adonai, and great is Your power.

ixcp lk :xetik meil :ziaxrYom Kippur Evening Service: Kol NidreiClergy Prayer: Opening the Ark, Opening OurselvesALL RISEYom Kippur: the Jewish people’s Festival of the Souland Kol Nidrei its sacred portal — a night of deep emotions,a night, as the psalmist wrote, to “rejoice with trembling.”We rejoice at the sound of Kol Nidrei — rhythmic words of releasefrom vows, oaths, and promises to God we fail to keep.We tremble at the melody. Music of spiritual amazement,it fills us with awe as we stand before God and Torah.We rejoice that we stand together, strengthened by communityin this hour of shared weakness and humility.We tremble — for tonight we confess our flaws, admit our imperfection,and acknowledge a Power far beyond our understanding.We rejoice that we commit ourselves to great endeavorsbecause we feel so deeply and think so nobly.We tremble — for we find that our ideals are far greater than our ability;our promises surpass our might.We rejoice in the freedom that is Kol Nidrei’s true gift:the freedom to begin a new year without fear of failure,to aspire to be God’s image in the world.We tremble because we are mortal;we rejoice in our gratitude for life.We rejoice with trembling, and enter Kol Nidrei to face our humanity.—Rabbi Sheldon MarderALL ARE SEATEDI I3

Kol Nidrei Prelude: Cello & PianoI IInvocationOnce more Yom Kippur has come.All pretense gone,naked heart revealed to the hiding self,we stand on holy ground,between the day that wasand the one that must be.We tremble.At what did we aim?How did we stumble?What did we take? What did we give?To what were we blind?Last year’s confession came easily to the lips.Will this year’s come from deeper than the skin?Say then:Why are our paths strewn with promises like fallen leaves?Say then:When shall our lust be for wisdom?Say now:Love and truth shall meet;justice and peace shall embrace.O Hope of Israel:In our weakness, give us strength.In our blindness, be our guide.When we falter, hold our hand.Make consistent our impulse for good;let us know the joy of walking in Your ways.—From Gates of Repentance, CCAR, 1978I4
