The Yom Kippur liturgy is centered around confession and acknowledgement of sin. But, what if we have been doing it all wrong? What if the proper way to repent and engage with our sins is to conceal, rather than reveal them? In this lecture we'll approach teshuvah through this counter-intuitive lens and see what we can uncover about our best selves when we cover up our worst transgressions.
