Contribute a translation Source (English)

After the Amidah,
it is important to find a moment
to search
your heart and conscience.
If you find something
that needs repair,
make your commitment
to do so,
and ask for the grace
to fulfill
that tikkun.

Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, z”l, included this prescription in his Siddur Tehillat Hashem Yidaber Pi (2009). –Aharon N. Varady
