I'm just asking for a friend!

There was once a Jew who had sinned and wanted to do Teshuva, in other words to come back and repent. This is why he wanted to ask his Rabbi what he should do. But he was ashamed to tell the Rabbi about his sin. So when he went to the Rabbi, he told him he was asking on behalf of a friend who was ashamed to come. The Rabbi understood the situation and answered him: “This is very simple and easy! Let your friend come himself and say he is asking for a friend”.

It is often difficult for us to face our actions. We prefer to forget and not allow anyone or anything to remind us about them. But the real and right way is to admit our sin and understand our mistake. Then, we need to take a good decision which will help us not do it again in the future.

Finally, we need to remember that we are humans and not angels and this is why we are not perfect. Our sin should not disturb us to the point that it will be an obstacle to our everyday life and our service to G-d.

Shabbat Shalom,

Arie from the Yeshiva
