Every year before Yom Kippur, I write my sins into a blog post as a sort of web-based vidui. I hope everyone will join me by posting their own sins here, on our Facebook and on Twitter with the hashtags #vidui and #yomkippur.
Here’s last year. And now, this year…
Losing My Temper
I get angry and I turn into such a whiney you-know-what. I tend to let the little things get to me. #Vidui
Two Hamburgers at the Airport
Flying frustrates me. Bumped from a flight to Chicago = Checkers Big Burford. Flight from ATL delayed = double burger from Wendys. #Vidui
Working on Shabbat
Spent one Saturday begging promoters to put me on a band’s national tour…later found out the tour did not exist. #Violate #Shabbat #Vidui
Forgetting to Lay Tefillin and Daven Daily
My addiction to social media is out of hand and prevents me from connecting to God the way I am supposed to. #vidui
At least once a week, I complain to our intern or a friend about some Jewish figure who is driving me insane. #vidui
I think the least of people when it turns out I should think the most. I assume the worst when I should hope for the best. #vidui
That doesn’t conclude my list, but it’s the best I can do for now. As is custom for Yom Kippur, I apologize to anyone that has been hurt by my words and/or actions.
So what are your #Sins? Confess on #Yom #Kippur
