Teshuvah (Repentance)


"Regarding any Mitzvah, whether a commandment or a prohibition:

"If a person violates a Mitvah, either in error or intentionally, when he repents and abandons his sin he must admit it before Gd, as it is written, 'A man or woman who performs...they shall admit their sins, which they performed.' This refers to verbal admission, and this is a Mitzvah."
(Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 1:1)

Have a great day,
