Read: On Repentance by Pinchas Peli
If there is one book you should read before Rosh Hashana or before Yom Kippur (and if you cannot get it before then, then sometime this year) it is On Repentance. This is the Rav's thoughts on Teshuva as compiled by Pinchas H. Peli. I took the book out of the library at 9:00 PM tonight and was so totally captivated by it that I finished it just now- I read the whole book in one night. It is 343 pages and full of beautiful, insightful, compelling and awe-inducing thoughts and ideas. It will make you cry. Take it out, read it, absorb it- let it touch you. All of you who went out and bought the Rav Machzor for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? What you really want is this book. And all of you who didn't? You still want this book.
