Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “To make changes.”

For the true baal teshuva, the existence of flaws is intrinsic to him and to his personality.

If he did not have flaws, he would not be who he is.

The baal teshuva thrives on his ability to deconstruct his personality in order to reshape it in another form, to make changes within himself.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
