Aseret Yemei Teshuva - The 10 Days Of Repentance

Updated: Sep 12, 2023

The Daily Halacha Moment - Aseret Yemei Teshuva 📖

‎״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)

“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)


What exactly is Aseret Yemei Teshuva?


The days between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur are called Aseret Yemei Teshuva and are an auspicious time for repentance. Many sefarim state that each day of the week between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur has the ability to atone for the same day of every week of the previous year. For example, one who repents on Sunday of Aseret Yemei Teshuvah may atone for all of the sins he committed on each Sunday of the previous year, and so on. We see from this that we should try our hardest to act in the most proper way through out this week. [1]

Similarly, Even though good deeds and teshuvah can atone for one’s sins between man and Hashem, they are not enough to atone for sins that involve causing damage or hurt to another person. Therefore, one must also ask sincere forgiveness from one’s family and friends if one has wronged them. [2]

Over the next couple of days we will be discussing the Halachot pertaining to Aseret Yemei Teshuva.
