The Blessing of Forgiveness
(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Forgiveness is so powerful. When someone asks from their heart that you forgive them, that act of forgiveness feels like lifting an anvil off of your own heart, an anvil you couldn't lift alone, a weight that required two lifters. What a holy feeling, and what bravery it requires. Blessed are You, God, Who gives us the strength to forgive and be forgiven.
May we learn from the destructive leadership of Korach to disagree like mentches, to see debate as a healthy thing neighbors can do.
