Insincere repentance


"We have been instructed regarding repentance in several places in the Torah.

"It has been shown that repentance is accepted even if it is the result of a person's troubles, all the more so if one repents as a result of awe of Gd and love of Him."

(Rabbeinu Yonah of Gerondi, Shaarei Teshuvah [Gates of Repentance], Section I)

Have a great day,
