      Re: Tuvah Ira?
       Teshuva Tataa is going away from sin; while Teshuva Ilaa is about reconnecting with Hashem. And (perhaps you can say) accordingly…

      That depends on what motivates you. If you are motivated by the need to get away from what is not good (neglect of family and the like), then it is the lower Teshuva; If on the other hand, you are motivated by the goodness of life and its responsibilities (that they are good and not a Burdon) then that would be like Tehsuva Ilaa.

      I’m not sure I understood the question.

    question
    Beautiful!



    In the end I didn't understand the statement that it's possible to do higher teshuva even without lower Teshuva just by fulfilling Torah and mitzvos. If person has no fire, feeling (like his head was cut off G-d forbid) how Torah and Mitzvas will help him? According to explanation here they are only like vessels that may contain fire. So how will the fire come back?

      Re: question
       The idea is not to do cold Torah and Mitzvos but passionate Torah and Mitzvos. I believe that this is the intention of Iggeres HaTeshuva ch. 10 as well. Though there he seems to be saying that the lower Teshuva must be done first.

      The light of Torah and Mitzvos is G-dly. In other words the Teshuva of [the light of] Torah and Mitzvos are far more than the human beings investment of passion, since they are G-dliness. This combination (of G-dly Mitzvos with human passion) brings the person back into a connectedness with G-dliness that is real and conscious.

    Thanks
    Thank you, Rabbi, as always good class. I like very much your introductory story. It is showed that everyone can reach level of teshuva for Hashem forgiveness.

      Answer: It’s not only about forgiveness; it’s much more about the connection as I tried to explain in the class.
