Religious traditions speak a great deal about forgiveness, as we would expect. They not only ask us to seek forgiveness from God, but ask that we grant it to each other.

Maimonides in his “Mishneh Torah,” the great code of law, states clearly that one should not be cruel and withhold forgiveness. Traditions do not underestimate the difficulty of forgiving, but they understand its necessity.

What is the expectation of your tradition? And how have you lived up to it?

–David Wolpe
