Judge with righteousness

Posted: Wednesday, May 3, 2017 6:48 am

On Yom Kippur morning, a number of years ago, a congregant comes over to me and says, “Rabbi, Look what I’m wearing on my feet.” I look down and notice his new shoes. He continues, “Last night after Kol Nidrei you announced we do not wear leather shoes on Yom Kippur. So I went to the mall and bought these non-leather shoes!”

Now I’m thinking to myself, it is appropriate to wear shoes that don’t have any leather in them on Yom Kippur, but it is not so appropriate to go to the mall!
