"All vows...may it be forgiven... because the entire people will have acted in error."
The opening ceremony of Yom Kippur is Kal Nidre. We take out seven of the Torah scrolls from the Hechal and bring them to the people. The scrolls are brought back and the Kal Nidre is recited. Our Rabbi points out a most beautiful symbolism in the fact that we bring out the Sifrei Torah to the great crowd on Yom Kippur night. If one would think, one would realize that all of our sins come from the fact that the Torah is in the Hechal and not always amongst us. The Torah is left in the corner, and not mingling amongst us. Would we sin in front of a Sefer Torah? Because it is in the Hechal we come up with new ideas that are not in the Torah, which are the opposite of what is in the Torah. The Torah, which is the light of the world, must be planted amongst us in order to produce the proper result and to straighten out the paths of our lives. We would therefore not have made unneeded vows.
In this light we can understand the ending statement of Kal Nidre, that Hashem should forgive us because we have acted out of error and not because we wanted to sin.
It is clear that all that we need is a greater knowledge of Torah and to bring the Torah into our crowd.
