Kol Nidre 5778


Kol Nidre is aramaic for All Vows.  Sung, it is wildly deeply beautiful.  We all need forgiveness.

Forgive me


forgive me

for arrogance

for acting as though

I know

more than you

as though I know better

wanting you to do things

different from your instincts

you never have to go to the gym

forgive me for all pettiness

all control forgive me for forgetting

love is what matters

and now right now

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. “Forgive Me” a gorgeous message as the High Holidays approach their great ending.

    And forgive us for allowing the urgency of everyday obligation to deter us from connection to old, much loved friends.
