Melissa Scholten-Gutierrez writes, “Rav Avi spoke to us a few times as he was working through [composing] this [vidui] and I am truly moved by it. Let us not only remember and confess our wrong doings, but also what we did right this year.”

For another life affirming vidui, read Rabbi Binyamin Holtzman’s Complementary Vidui” inspired by the teaching of Rav Kook that “just as there is great value to the confession of sins… there is also great value to the confession of mitzvot (our positive deeds), which gladdens the heart and strengthens the holy paths of life!” (Ayn Aya, tractate Maaser sheni, chapter 7, mishna 10).
