On Yom Kippur we do a lot of confessing, telling HaShem what we’ve done wrong and promising to do better. In fact, there is a special prayer called “Al Cheit,” in which we list a whole bunch of no-good sins (BTW: there’s no such thing as a “good sin”).
Al Chet Shechatanu… For the sin we have committed by scheming against a fellow man.
Al Chet Shechatanu… For the sin we have committed by embezzlement.
Scheming? Sounds bad! Embezzlement? Sounds even worse! (Not even sure if I know what it means!)
Amazingly, each line begins with “For the sin which we have done…”
We?! Yes, we.
Even if you did not do that particular sin, there is some other Jew out there on planet earth who did. Remember… Kol Yisrael Areivim Zeh LaZeh – we are all responsible for each other.
