With David Richter

Just before we sing Kol Nidre, the rabbi tells us that “for transgressions against God, the Day of Atonement atones; but for transgressions against a human being, the Day of Atonement does not atone until they have made peace with one another.” This passage from the Mishna Yoma on Yom Kippur is our starting point for an argument in the Talmud over how we can atone for our sins and about the human limits of atonement and forgiveness.  Join David Richter as we look at the stories they told and discuss the principles they debated.
