Wordless Repentance

As part of the Working Group on Repentance that I taught in the “Couch to 5777 Preparation for Elul” series last month, I asked students to describe repentance without words. At first they insisted that they couldn’t draw, as most adults generally do  when they are asked to draw. But in the next few moments, fascinating illustrations emerged – people on two sides of a road walking in the same direction, a loop with a heart on one end and a void on the other, a person with hands raised in payer, interconnecting “molecules”, and many others. Each picture the journey we take during these ten days of repentance leading up to Yom Kippur.

What would your illustration be?
