Elul Reflections: Apology

Do you have loose ends to tie up?  We all messed up this year.  This is the time to say “I’m sorry.”  Not a blanket email or facebook apology to all your friends, saying you’re sorry if you have offended anyone this year.  Make it real.  Show that you understand you were wrong. Maimonides teaches that repentance means recognizing our wrong, confessing it, apologizing, and changing our actions when we next have the opportunity.  It’s hard, sometimes even harsh; that’s why we confess together.  See you there.
