Volume 2, No. 13Welcome to the World of Rabbi Riddle.
Rabbi Riddle Says...
National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education

Pardon Me!
  Flame On!Awesome! And Then Some!  
In this week's Torah Portion Vayigash, Joseph forgives his brothers for selling him into slavery. If Joseph could pardon his brothers for this, how much more should we be able to forgive others for things they did to us!

  • The Hebrew word, NOSEIN, "to give" is spelled the same forward and backwards! This teaches us that one who gives also receives. Similarly, when you forgive others for their mistakes, G-d forgives you for yours.

  • Yom Kippur only atones for misdeeds that man did before G-d. To make up for misdeeds that one did to another, you have to ask that person's forgiveness!

  • Moshe's brother, Aaron, often helped people forgive each other. When two men argued, he would say to one, "Mr. X wants to stop fighting. But he's ashamed to say he's sorry." He then said the same thing to the other. When the two men met, they would become good friends once more!

Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
  1. Forgiveness is one of the traits of G-d. Where else will you always find forgiveness?
  1. In the dictionary!
