Read Chancellor Arnold Eisen’s 2013 Kol Nidrei Message

Dear JTS Community:

I've been asked to post the sermon I delivered at Kol Nidrei, a more expansive version of the message that appeared last week in the Huffington Post. I'd especially enjoy comment about my proposal that we not apply the dichotomy "secular versus religious" to individuals, and would enjoy dialogue about Moby Dick.

I encourage you to share your thoughts about "Bridging the Secular/Religious Divide in Ourselves and the World" at

Best wishes for a good year.
