As discussed in the previous messages, the word teshuvah is normally translated as “repentance”, yet teshuvah does not mean “repentance”, rather it literally means ‘turning around.” In true Hebraic spiritual sense, it directs us to “return to our Divine Source,” as the ancient adage said, “Return to Hashem Elohecha (your G-D).” In order to fully understand what the Torah means in connection with the word teshuvah, many sages have looked for an acronym in its letters and it revealed the meaning of teshuvah to those who seek the truth.
Some have related its meaning to describe the activities we usually do in this time like fasting and moaning, studying the Torah and verbal confession, accompanied by an attitude of humility. Others have discovered that is not only an invitation to return to HaShem, but in a deeper sense, it is about bringing HaShem into our beings through Adonai Yeshua.
In this study, we will look upon the soul-contritions and how coming near to the L-RD by doing Teshuvah makes us free. As well, for the tasks given, there are corresponding trophy or reward.
