In advance of Yom Kippur, seven Sh'ma readers share brief essays regarding what they take to be the American Jewish community's most overlooked sin. Their answers: lying for economic gain; speaking recklessly in public; neglecting Jewish education; chillul Hashem (desecrating God's name); Jewish complacency; lack of ritual observance; and excessive ego. (This is part 3 of a series.)
