(Call and Response:)

For the sin we committed by not serving our community.
And for the sin we committed by serving our community and neglecting ourselves and our families.

For the sin we committed by chasing after material possessions.
And for the sin we committed by thinking we are unworthy of owning nice things.

For the sin we committed by saving the world and ignoring our own people.
And for the sin we committed by saving Jews and ignoring the rest of the world.

For the sin we committed by being too busy for our children.
And for the sin we committed by indulging our children.

For the sin we committed by ignoring the past.
And for the sin we committed by living only in the past.

For the sin we committed by being selfish.
And for the sin we committed by not loving ourselves and not caring enough for ourselves.
-Adapted by Rabbi Dov Peretz Elkins

Why make an account?

Because why use any of your precious brain cells to remember where you kept those great readings that you’ll use someday at Jeffrey’s B Mitzvah? Make an account, keep the readings there. Easy peasy. The only thing you’ll need to remember is your password, and from personal experience that’s hard enough.
