    All vows, and prohibitions, and oaths, and consecrations, and
    konams
    and
    konasi
    and any synonymous terms, that we may vow, or swear, or consecrate, or prohibit upon ourselves, •from the previous Day of Atonement until this Day of Atonement and ...• ♦from this Day of Atonement until the [next] Day of Atonement that will come for our benefit.♦ Regarding all of them, we repudiate them. All of them are undone, abandoned, cancelled, null and void, not in force, and not in effect. Our vows are no longer vows, and our prohibitions are no longer prohibitions, and our oaths are no longer oaths.

      The
      Kol Nidrei
      prayer has been used by non-Jews as a basis for asserting that an oath taken by a Jew may not be trusted.
      [67]
      Historically, this accusation was leveled so often and so persistently that many non-Jewish legislators considered it necessary to have a special form of oath administered to Jews ("
      Oath More Judaico
      "), and many judges refused to allow them to take a supplementary oath, basing their objections chiefly on this prayer. As early as 1240 in the
      Disputation
      of Paris,
      Yechiel of Paris
      was obliged to defend
      Kol Nidrei
      against these charges.
      [3]
      The Russian government, in 1857, decreed that the prayerbooks must include, as an introduction to Kol Nidrei, a Hebrew explanation to the readers of the limited nature of the vows that could be released by this ceremony.
