Yom Kippur Confession to Queer People

On Yom Kippur we come together as a community to confess our sins of the previous year. Part of this is acknowledging the harm we have committed knowingly or unknowningly. It can often be the case that even the communities who consider themselves progressive and open have fallen short to create a safe space for the LGBTQ members of their communities. Gavi Nelson created this Yom Kippur Confession to Queer People to awaken us to our failings and remind us to start working harder and doing better in the year to come.

Please feel free to share with your communities.
