גמר חתימה טובה

Forgiveness implies precise conditions: I must apologize to the one I have offended, injured or wounded; he must accept my request; it must forgive me, that is to say "cover" the offense, the injury or wound a word which soothes and calms me.

The Gemara relates that even Rav Hanina who had offended, went to ask forgiveness thirteen years ago, on the eve of Yom Kippur, without that never subsides. This emphasis may have come from an acute awareness of sin, a consciousness that grows with the humility required to Yom Kippur. But if, on his part, Rabbi Hanina refuses to forgive is because, as Levinas remarks, it is more difficult to forgive a Rav than anybody. (Catherine Chalier)
