Letters and Numbers of the Festivals - Yom Kippur

Watch Watch (43:45)
At the very beginning of Yom Kippur, before Kol Nidrei, we declare: "With the sanction of the Omnipresent, and with the sanction of the congregation, by authority of the Heavenly Court, and by authority of the earthly court, we hereby grant permission to pray with those who have transgressed." All agree that on this day, there are no differences between Jews; they all stand united as one in the presence of G-d.
