This liturgy is based on the traditional public confession of sins on Yom Kippur and is meant to complement the existing al ḥet found in the maḥzor. This prayer written by Rabbi Ed Feld in 2007 for Yom Kippur 5768 was first published at the website of RHR-NA (now T’ruah).

    How beautiful a soul and heart and mind to create such a prayer. Let us all keep our eyes and ears open and live the words ” Never again!” But mean for all people of the world.
