Kol Nidre

Some local rabbis have shunned the idea of bringing politics to the pulpit, but Rabbi John Rosove of Temple Israel of Hollywood is not one of them.
Hebrew Discovery Center is one of the remaining synagogues to observe kapparot, the ritual killing of chickens performed during the Days of Awe.
For me, the compelling power of the Kol Nidre prayer is founded on two truths: 1) the meaning is the moment, and 2) the power of melody.
You are not sure why you don’t want to be late for Kol Nidre. Somewhere in your head the majestic music and solemn words are calling.
