Question
Iyov 31:33 If I covered my transgressions as Adam,by hiding my iniquity in my bosom. Adam had his first sewing lesson making fig leaf aprons hiding their nakedness yet revealing their iniquity. He like Esav wasn't remorseful just ashamed that he'd be found out. As hypocrites do,he began playing the blame game. Eve was deemed the proverbial scapegoat and mastermind of their dastardly deed. Adam also respectfully reminded G-d, He'd given ishshah to him. If he'd acknowledged his sin, would the pair still have been banished from G-d's presence and exiled from Eden? Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto Thee,and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto YHVH; and Thou forgave the iniquity of my sin. Selah. Job 13:16 For an hypocrite shall not come before Him. Would Adam & Eve been evicted from Eden if they'd repented and returned to Hashem? Or was their fall irrevocably FINAL?

Question
Iyov 31:33 If I covered my transgressions as Adam,by hiding my iniquity in my bosom: I've often pondered if Adam had confessed, would he still have faced banishment from the PRESENCE of G-d? Psalm 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto Thee,and my iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto YHVH, and Thou forgave the iniquity of my sin. Celah Torah declares we are to fear (awe respect) G-d,and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man (adam) Ecclesiastes 12:13 Micah 6:8 G-d has shown man (adam) what is good; and what does G-d require, to do justly, to love mercy,and to walk humbly with G-d? Though Adam through disobedience failed to meet the guidelines. Would his outcome been different if he'd repented in his heart?

Question
Dear Rabbi, I read that there are three categories of people whose sins are forgiven: One who converts to Judaism, one who is promoted to high position, and one who gets married. I understand marriage and conversion have power to cleanse iniquities since they are like a new start and the person is transformed (and transforms himself) into a “new person” with a clean slate. But what is the connection between one's promotion and the forgiveness of his previous transgressions? Thanks!

Question
Hi, I have some questions regarding teshuvah for Jews and Noahides. As I understand teshuvah, there is two levels. The first level turns the intentional sin into an unintentional sin. That lowers the punishment, but it does not remove the sin. The second level removes the sin, and you are no longer guilty in the eyes of G-d. I recently heard from a rabbi, that it does not work like that for Noahides. We (Noahides) do not have a way to remove a sin completely. We can do teshuvah, but the sin will not be completely removed. Just as the first level of teshuvah for Jews. Therefore there is no way for a Noahide to be completely forgiven, which means that he/she will still be punished. The only way around this, is to convert to Judaism and to get a new soul that "starts at zero," you can say. Considering that most Noahides are former Christians and that idolatry is a serious sin, it sounds like converting is the only right thing to do. In general people make mistakes that they regret later, if they are former Christians or not. Is this view of teshuvah true? If yes, what is the sources for it? And why do Jews then discourage Noahides of converting, if it is the only way to be completely forgiven?

Question
Hello. What do rishonim and even Chazal say about the halachic matter of kapara without the activity of the Kohen Gadol in the Beis Hamikdash on Yom Kippur? I am aware of the general concept of prayers replacing sacrifices, but specifically, what is the effect of not having the kapara through the avoda of the Kohen Gadol? Do we have anything in the Oral Law that indicates the alternative (as we do in the matter of the calendar through cheshbon instead of testimony)? Thank you.

Question
If a person does sin and begs for mercy from God, if he/she does the same sin again and again does Hashem forgive him?
