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:

Project Forgiveness
P.O. Box 5134
Bergenfield, NJ 07621

We accept postcards, emails, powerpoint, art, music, video and more!

Dear Mama,

I understand that you hurt me because you were in pain. I understand that you were hurt by people whom you loved, and that you have forgiven them.

It's very hard for me to forgive, because it seems like I'm saying that it's okay for people to hurt me. I know that forgiveness is the only way to free myself from the pain of the past.

I know that you did the best that you could. I forgive you. I know that you have forgiven me too.

I love you.
