Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, begins today at sundown and ends tomorrow at sundown. The evening service begins with the Kol Nidre. It has a haunting melody. Listen.

This is the translation from Aramaic:

All vows, obligations, oaths, and anathemas, whether called ‘konam,’ ‘konas,’ or by any other name, which we may vow, or swear, or pledge, or whereby we may be bound, from this Day of Atonement until the next (whose happy coming we await), we do repent. May they be deemed absolved, forgiven, annulled, and void, and made of no effect; they shall not bind us nor have power over us. The vows shall not be reckoned vows; the obligations shall not be obligatory; nor the oaths be oaths.

Kol Nidre is also the basis of a composition by Max Bruch, which can be found on YouTube in various performances and arrangements.

I liked the 1927 Jolson at Berkley version much better than the 1928 Red Rocks one where Al jammed with Eddie Cantor and the 7 Little Foys.

This board has been going for 10+ years and this is the first time that any religious bullshit has been posted.

Unless you are trolling. Then, well played, sir.

Beejmi has been under investigation for years for funneling the ample resources he receives from S&W to extremist groups in Saudi Arabia.  We put up with it because there is no other way to know who Wilbut Snyder wrestled on April 16, 1967, but this type of post is not welcome here.

I myself am not religious, but I'm not anti-religion either. However, I do like to honor my Christian and Jewish friends.
If I have violated posting rules, it was unintentional.

This place has no rules, so post away.

I'll also give my opinion that religion is archaic bullshit that was invented by powerful people to keep their grip over the weak. The sooner we release ourselves from it, the better, but people are getting dumber in the 21st century, and it's taking over again. It really boils my piss when people post sincerely about religion, and I'd never seen it here before.

EDIT: There is one posting rule. Don't post any pictures of coitus between man and dog.

Unless it's a welcome to the board thread.

Other than the aforementioned legally questionable porn incident, that put everyone here in a bad position, I've never really seen anyone get an official rebuke or a post deleted.  Stupid posts just get moved to the Rubber Room.  Of course you might still get mocked or trolled for certain posts, but this place is Disneyland compared to what it was 5 years ago, so even that will be mild at this point.  There's virtually no drama here anymore and barely even a need for self-policing much less any reason for the mods to get involved.

I asked Tito if he wanted to be stalked.  He said, "No."
