All vows, prohibitions, oaths, consecrations, vows, vows,
equivalent terms that we may vow, swear, consecrate, or
prohibit upon ourselves -- from the last Yom Kippur until
this Yom Kippur, and from this Yom Kippur until the next
Kippur, may it come upon us for good - regarding them all,
we regret them henceforth. They all will be permitted,
abandoned, cancelled, null and void, without power and
without standing. Our vows shall not be valid vows; our
prohibitions shall not be valid prohibitions; and our
shall not be valid oaths.

Aramaic declaration, meaning "All vows", with which the evening service of Yom Kippur begins. Originally the text read to nullify vows that were not fulfilled during the previous year. Was revised by Rabbaynu Tam and others in 12th century medieval Europe to refer to vows that will be made in the future. Source: The Encyclopedia of Jewish Prayer. All Jewish sources and interpretations of Kol Nidrei agree that the formula covers only vows between the individual and G-d. -Reuven [email protected] I think I remember hearing a version of Kol Nidrey on Neil Diamond's albums. Actually, he sang the beginning words of the song in "The Jazz Singer."
