Can you do Teshuva incorrectly?

How to Do Teshuvah/Repentance


Rabbi David Fohrman

Rabbi David Fohrman

Founder and Lead Scholar

Teshuvah (repentance), is an emotional and deeply personal process. Yet, Judaism has numerous laws for exactly how we’re supposed to repent, including a specific process of confession. How does this make sense? Can there really be a “right” and “wrong” way to repent?

The following presentation on the laws of Teshuvah or repentance, was originally recorded as a course for The High Holidays. However, it mostly discusses the laws of Teshuvah, which are relevant all year round. Rabbi Fohrman begins by discussing an obscure law relating to Vidui, or confession, which is part of the prayers of Yom Kippur. But the discussion quickly moves to a general treatment of Hilchot Teshuva, the laws of Repentance.
