Rambam, Laws of Repentance 2:1
2 ב
אי זו היא תשובה גמורה, זה שבא לידו דבר שעבר בו ואפשר בידו לעשותו ופירש ולא עשה מפני התשובה, לא מיראה ולא מכשלון כח.
[Who has reached] complete tshuvah? A person who confronts the same situation in which he sinned when he has the potential to commit [the sin again], and, nevertheless, abstains and does not commit it because of his tshuvah alone and not because of fear or a lack of strength. [AJWS translation]
3 ג

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. What mistakes do we seem to keep making over and over again?

2. How can we invite our communities to make substantive changes to our level and content of social activism?
