It's easy to say the words, "I'm sorry," but it can be hard to show that we really mean it. This week the Sparks and the Plony family learn about the word slicha and making a sincere apology. Saying sorry includes not only apologizing but also showing with our actions that we do feel bad for what we've done. In Judaism, apologies are an opportunity to make things right.
Since Yom Kippur is almost here, it's the perfect time to learn about slicha as well as teshuva or repentance with your family.
The four steps to apologizing are:
1. Say "sorry"
2. Ask forgiveness
3. Fix what you did wrong
4. Promise not to do it again
For more ideas about how to say sorry, make amends, and move forward, check out our blog posts: What is Teshuva? and 4 Ways Kids Can Participate on Yom Kippur.
