The Fall Interfaith Book Club will begin meeting the week of Oct. 24. This semester’s book is “On Repentance and Repair” by Danya Ruttenberg. In this selection, Rabbi Ruttenberg reshapes the idea of accountability and redemption in the modern day, and focuses on an ancient view of forgiveness based on the medieval philosopher Maimonides, in which reparations and hard work are required for true repentance. While this book is based on traditional Jewish values, there are many interfaith themes that are applicable to this aspect of spirituality, and many ideas that anyone could take from restructuring their idea of forgiveness and personal growth. Ultimately, working on yourself as well as dissecting your individual values is a topic pertinent to any college student navigating life on campus, and “On Repentance and Repair” is a fascinating invitation to introspect into your own thoughts and feelings about this topic!
