For the Sin of Silence

By David Ellenson

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2007

In this column, part of the Sigi Ziering series on the ethics of leadership, the author reflects on our "sins of inattention and omission," which the High Holidays' Avinu Malkeinu prayer challenges us to consider. Given the privileged position of the present-day American Jewish community, he calls upon us during these Days of Repentance to acknowledge there is a "time to speak."
