Sam Landes of Shoafim on Asking Forgiveness
On Wednesday I heard a d’var Torah from Sam Landes of Shoafim on asking for forgiveness, one of the berakhot of the Amidah. Sam noted that sometimes we can’t just wait till Yom Kippur to ask for forgiveness. Having it as part of our tefillot reminds us to ask for forgiveness whenever it is necessary, even if that’s every day. This is especially true at camp where our time together is limited. Camp will be over for many first session hanikhim soon enough. If we don’t ask for forgiveness from those we have hurt now, then we may never get the opportunity.
