This week’s guest is Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of the new book On Repentance and Repair: Making Amends in an Unapologetic World. This show is not typically interfaith, but when the opportunity to read Rabbi Ruttenberg’s latest arose, I leapt at the chance. I’ve followed her on Twitter for years and admire her work immensely.
Looking forward to this one. A therapist asked me years ago if I was familiar with Jewish concepts on forgiveness. She said some forms of forgiveness aren’t considered possible to give in this lifetime. That one sentence pointed out to me how harmful a narrow, simplistic understanding of forgiveness can be.
