t'shuva - What is it?

T’shuvah, while frequently translated as “repent,” has its Hebrew roots in the verb, “to turn.” When we have done something wrong, we need to turn to the other direction and commit to not wronging again. In other words, t’shuvah can best be understood as returning to friendship with the person we hurt and returning to a closeness with God. Our goal with t’shuvah, then, is getting back on the path toward becoming the best we can become.

Jewish tradition tells us sincere apology is one of the four steps in t'shuvah, turning to our best selves:

Express remorse.
Attempt to ‘right the wrong.’
Never repeat the mistake given the same situation.
