Aleph Beta on Yom Kippur: Is There a Right Way to Do Teshuva?
Teshuvah, or repentance, is a personal and emotional process. Laws are impersonal; they are objective and unbiased. The law doesn’t care about personal feeling. But, nevertheless, Judaism has many laws for repentance. How can there be laws for something so intrinsically personal? Can there really be a “right” and “wrong” way to repent?
This video was produced by Aleph Beta, which seeks to help people get to the heart of what Torah is all about. Through a willingness to question and take a deeper look at our sources, Aleph Beta helps people find their place in a story that has been told for thousands of years. Bringing new methods to a very old tradition, we’ve attempted to make each video surprising and exciting.
