The Deathbed Confessional

By Alison Jordan

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2003

A former oncology nurse, practicing psychotherapist, and visitor of the sick, the author offers a sample Vidui, Deathbed Confessional. She states that the Vidui unburdens a heavy heart in order to let go of life peacefully; it views death as an event that must be encountered and met.
