Congregation Beth David Repentance vs Cancel Culture with Rabbi Berkowitz

12:00PM - 1:15PM  


Repentance vs. Cancel Culture: Do We Allow Others to Do Teshuvah? (Zoom)

With Rabbi Berkowitz 
Cancel culture, now the rage, is a form of boycott  in which someone is  "canceled" and bullied because of a wrong they committed. With social media, the impacts are often permanent. We'll study the process and parameters of teshuvah in Jewish Law and discuss these questions: Should any transgression be irredeemable? Do we draw permanent lines that disallow others to repent? What price do we pay when we permanently disallow another's teshuvah?
