The purpose of this booklet is to make the entire Viduy tefilah accessible to children ages 9-16, for whom reading the English translation in the machzor would not sufficiently explain the meaning of the words. Written in easy-to-understand language and with examples that are applicable to children’s lives, this booklet will make the Yom Kippur davening more meaningful and relevant to children of all ages.

PRAISE FOR “VIDUY BOOKLET FOR KIDS”:
In preparing this “Viduy Booklet for Kids”, Morah Adina Broder creates a highly readable, child-friendly guide to the Yom Kippur Viduy that will surely enhance young people’s understanding and kavanah (intention) when reciting the viduy that recurs so many times during the Yom Kippur service. As an educator par excellence, who touches the heartstrings as well as teaches,Morah Broder brings both an age-appropriate sensitivity to the text and its meaning, as well as concrete examples from the everyday lives of students, that will surely resonate with young people when they use the Booklet as a learning tool and especially as a companion to the Machzor. I hope that it will be used by both schools and parents.
