Yoma 36: Atonement

Where and how the kohen sets up the animal for the korban of Yom Kippur, including semichat yadaim and the vidui confession, an element of Yom Kippur that lasts to this very day. Plus discussion of when a Korban is necessary, what the laying on of hands accomplishes, as per a dispute between R. Yosi HaGalili and R. Akiva, on the various sins and atonement. Plus, the Vidui itself, in much of its serious detail. Note: We apologize for the audio quality – we’re not sure why it’s so soft.
