Project Forgiveness 2009

Welcome to Project Forgiveness. Here, we collect and post videos, emails, postcards and other expressions of regret from those who seek to forgive and from those who wish to express regret.

In the days leading up to the Jewish New Year, we offer this forum as a first step. It is our hope that sharing thoughts of forgiveness online will translate into actual forgiveness between individuals in the days to come.

How to participate? It's simple. Send us your "sorry" (upload a video to youtube and send us the link) or email us at: forgiveness or mail to:

To Whom It May Concern In Project Forgiveness

My feeling doesn’t match my husband’s version, with respect to forgive and forget.

I think it’s a matter of degree. On minor matters most people do forgive and forget. An on personal insults and damaging another’s financial well being; and even things hurtful to the nations economy –even those situations sometimes can be resolved with an apology or political correction.

But then there’s the whole in –between where, once corrected, people make a conscious effort not to bring up the subject but all parties have it close to the surface. Now I know that is not forgive and forget, but it is close.

And then there’s the whole other subject of tyranny, terrorism and murder. The words forgive and forget simply do not apply.
