Day 8: How the Baal Shem Tov* Taught Teshuvah
said the Rav**
he shuffled into our meeting
introduced us to the teaching
he brought down from the Baal Shem Tov.
Exodus 3:3, the Rav said, G*d speaks to Moses
the bush burning but unconsumed.
Moses turns away,
I will turn away now
and see about this bush
how it remains unconsumed.
Check the Rashi.***
Rashi say, I will turn away from here
and approach There.
That’s how the Baal Shem Tov taught teshuvah, said the Rav.
