Bechukotai – Say It As It Is – and Move On

In this week’s parsha, Bechukotai, there is reference to a profound expression of guilt that became known as ‘confession’ in the Christian doctrine. The word is Vidui, which means to to acknowledge verbally one’s sins and shortcomings. It is part of daily prayers and highlighted on Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur.
