Roundtable: Thinking about Sin

By Ruth Langer, Richard Hirsh, Susan Berrin, Marc Margolius, Nehemia Polen, Jan Uhrbach

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2008

Sh'ma asks a number of rabbis to consider how they teach about sin, and what role it plays in the spiritual lives of their students and congregants. The rabbis explored whether sin is a useful category, or if it simply engenders guilt; the relationship of belief to sinning; sinning and repentance; and the impact of Christian thought on Jewish attitudes toward sin.
