Yom Kippur 5780

“I believe that our Jewish community has a unique role to play in helping our nation repent for these sins. Afterall, we learned from Maimonides, over a thousand years ago, the path to t’shuvah. Let’s remember to recognize our past, to apologize for our nation’s wrongdoing, and to help repair the harm that’s been done.”
