Confessing, Repenting, and Making Restitution for Our Sins

You will hardly be surprised to learn that there are many verses in the Scriptures that deal with repenting of and confessing our sins.

It is the general rule that we are to confess our sins, repent, and make restitution. Confession is always to God but, according to James 5:16, we are also to confess our sins to one another.

In this Mitzvah, I consider what this mean for us in a post-Temple environment and address what happens on those occasions when it is not appropriate for us to make restitution. I am joined in this Mitzvah by Daniel Juster, who adds some very useful comments.
