The central motive of Yom Kippur is teshuva (Repentance). In order to engage in the process of teshuva, one must first come to terms with oneself. Several elements of the Yom Kippur service are meant to enable us to engage on the challenging path of authenticity. Part of the Stanley Rudoff Memorial High Holy Day Lecture Series.
