Apologies to the Religious Jews in the Audience

Baruch attah adonai eloheinu melech ha-olam, asher k'dishanu bo'mitzvotav, vitzivanu lehadleek nehr, shel Mom.

I miss you, Mom.

May those of you who are observing Yom Kippur have an easy fast, and be written down in the book of life.

Borrowed from

"if I've done anything, in the past ever, that offended you and that we haven't talked already about, I would like to know if you want to tell me. I don't promise to apologize, but I promise to listen, and to explain if you want me to, and to wrestle down my defensiveness enough to at least consider the question of whether I ought to apologize or to change. And I promise that if I do, I won't expect automatic forgiveness."
