Aish HaTorah is an international network of Jewish educational centers, where Jews from all backgrounds can explore their heritage in an open, non-judgmental atmosphere. Aish HaTorah operates programs in over 100 cities on 5 continents. Our World Center is located in Jerusalem, directly opposite the Western Wall.

Our goal is to re-ignite Jewish pride by teaching Jews about their heritage and its contribution to humanity. Aish's educational programs are based on the following principles:

  • Torah teaches us how to maximize our pleasure and potential in life.
  • Jewish belief needs to be built upon a rational foundation, not a leap of faith.
  • Judaism is a journey where every step counts. It's not all-or-nothing.

Wonderful

I am deeply moved by this and how King David worked out his hardship. I have gained a deeper understanding of forgiveness

This article seems to deal with cursory instances where forgiveness maybe easy and we're both participants are willing to work through the issue. I'm more interested in how one forgives when the person they're trying to forgive is not willing to discuss their actions or what prompted them. It is one thing thing to accept that you can't force the communication and maybe that person's role in your life has changed or ended but it is another to forgive.

Could have brought out that the definition of the word "kapara" is to wipe clean! See Rashi Chullin 8b ד"ה למבפריה.
