As we come close to Rosh Hashonah and Yom Kippur, we focus on tshuva. Most of us understand that there are areas in which we must improve, but only in a theoretical sense. It is rare to find a person who walks into shul on Yom Kippur with a fierce determination to get rid of his sins. Most of us just daven and try to focus on improving ourselves. The idea of heartfelt remorse and repentance just doesn’t seem to fit in.
This Shmuz will bring us to focus on the grave consequences of sin and our ability to use the power of tshuva to rid it from our essence.
