Seven Gifts of G-d

undefined

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

25 Kislev 5765
Question
"T’Shuvah means repentance, return and response and is one of the seven gifts created by G-D before the world came into existence." Do you know what the other six gifts are?
Answer
The Midrash tells us that seven things were created before the world came to existence. Torah, Gan Eden, Gehinom, name of Mashiach, the throne of glory, Teshuvah and Beit Mikdash. The meaning obviously is deeper than what superficially seems.
