We Need Not Fail

“Whatever else life is, it is striving, failing, trying again.”

Rabbi Olan’s October 7, 1962 (Erev Yom Kippur) message conveys a three-fold process for getting our lives back on track during the High Holy Days and beyond. To learn what he recommends, read the text, listen to the audio recording, or watch the scrolling-text video.

“It is not enough to analyze, examine, to pray for help, necessary as these are. Without action, the failure persists.”

(Rabbi Olan quotes Henry David Thoreau, Leo Tolstoy, Socrates, William Shakespeare, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.)
