Repenting and Forgiving:
To Whom Should We Apologize? When? How?

When Is It Permissible to Reject an Apology? An essential part of doing teshuva is to apologize to those we have wronged, and to ask for forgiveness. For many adults, that is difficult and painful to do. Retired law professor Cliff Fishman (who has had lots of first-hand experience apologizing) will use a question-and-answer format to discuss Jewish law and practical advice on the subject.

Clifford S. Fishman, is a professor emeritus of law, taught criminal law, criminal procedure and evidence for forty-two years at Catholic University of America. He has published 19 books and dozens of ridiculously long articles on these subjects, and has lectured extensively about them to pretty much anyone who asked politely. Originally from New York City, he and his wife Betty (married 52 years and counting) are both past presidents of Tikvat Israel Congregation in Rockville. They have two daughters, two sons-in-law, and five grandchildren. Other interests include studying and writing on Jewish subjects, travel, photography, and cultivating his beard.
