Sha'arei Teshuvah (Gates of Repentance) is one of three works, along with Iggeret ha-Teshuvah and Sefer HaYirah, that belong to the standard Jewish ethical works of the Middle Ages. It was written by Rabbeinu Yonah Gerondi, reportedly to atone for his earlier attacks on Maimonides and to emphasize his repentance.
