(As an Honorary Jew designated as such by one of my best friends from school, I can say this)
It’s almost sunset.
If, in the past year, I have caused you pain or hurt, either intentionally or unintentionally, I apologize, and I ask your forgiveness. May there be peace between us.
If, in the past year, you have caused me pain or hurt, either intentionally or unintentionally, I let go of any grudge or resentment. I forgive the harm. I let go of the hurt. I am at peace with you.
May we be released from all vows that proved impossible to keep, from all promises attempted but unfulfilled. May we be at peace with ourselves.
From this Day of Atonement until the next. Amen!
G’mar Hatimah Tovah. May you be sealed for a good year in the Book of Life.
