Day of Atonement: Atonement for What?
Dr. Shmuel Wygoda / September 30, 2014
We often relate to our religious life on a technical level: Do / Don't; Develop / Don't develop particular feelings. In turn our perception of teshuva is grounded in this kind of understanding. Some Hassidic texts suggest that the challenge of religious life should be conceived on a different scale.
