One week left.  There's so much left to do, invite guests, plan meals...  but that's not the most important.

We;re really supposed to be preparing our souls, mulling over our deeds, doing תשובה tshuva, repent.  But I have a problem with the word, term, idiom.  What is it לחזור בתשובה lachzor b'tshuva, return to the return?  It doesn't make much sense to me either.

The word תשובה has another meaning,   Like in שאלה-תשובה question-answer.  Maybe we're supposed to return to the old answers and not think our generation is smarter than the previous ones.  We should never say:

"That may have been OK for my grandmother, but not for me."

Our Torah is timeless.
