Unforgivable Sin

Question

There is a concept of the eternal sin in Christianity. Any sin can be forgiven, blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven. Is there any concept of unforgivable sin in Judaism?

  1. There is a concept of someone who sins and causes others to sin. According to the Rabbis, such a person has no place in the World to Come. What is fascinating about the idea is that it is not necessarily referring to enormous sins that a person may perform (for those there are, presumably, possibilities for punishment in the Spiritual Realms that will allow the soul to enter into the World of Souls afterwards). Rather, it refers the negative impact the person’s actions had on other people
