In this recorded class, R' Ami Silver explores two related and crucial aspects of Yom Kippur, and our experience of them today: confession and the emotion of shame.
Yom Kippur is oftentimes considered the most sacred day of the year. It is a day of atonement and internal cleansing. One of the central practices of this day is confessing our sins and misdeeds.
This session focuses on a teaching from the Chassidic master Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810) that offers a paradigm for using this practice of confession to transcend our sense of shame and smallness, and bring more of ourselves into presence.
