Moral Question of the Week – When an Apology is Not Enough – #DadChat

Category: Moral Question of the Week

Moral Compass

This week’s Moral Question is, “How much should you apologize if the person you’re apologizing to doesn’t accept your apology?” 

In Judaism there’s an “obligation” each year at Yom Kippur to reach out to those you’ve harmed and seek forgiveness and make restitution. IF the person does not accept your efforts, you are obliged to try again, and a third time. After a third effort, while you are not absolved (depends on the infraction), you are no longer obliged to try. I like this method, but welcome your thoughts?
