The joy of forgiveness


[Note: Bringing a sin offering requires a full and sincere repentance first.]

"Tehillim 48:3 calls Mount Zion 'The joy of the land', for when the Temple stood no Jew was in pain. One entered [the Temple] full of sin, brought an offering and atoned, and there could be no greater joy than leaving as a righteous person."

(Midrash, Shemot Rabbah 36:1)

Have a great day,
