Glossary for the passover Seder and Forgiveness

To Forgive Is To Give
Sometimes the greatest kindness you can do for someone is to forgive.

Some people will ask you directly for forgiveness. Others lack the awareness, courage or humility to ask your forgiveness.
Forgive even if you aren't asked to do so. This can be extremely difficult. And that is why it's so elevating.
