We often imagine that forgiveness is a largely Christian value, in contrast to a Jewish emphasis on justice. A great many traditional sources belie this sharp contrast. How do Jewish sources understand the value of forgiveness? What might we gain by retrieving these often-overlooked Jewish perspectives as we address the moral dilemmas we face in today’s world?
