There is hope for everyone

“…and he shall carry the ashes outside the camp to a clean place.” (Leviticus 6:4)

Just as ashes can catch fire again. even that which is utterly corrupt and “outside the camp” can change for the better. Since God ultimately hopes that even the wicked be restored, we must not discard the ashes. We place them in a clean place – perhaps they will once again glow. (The Ishbitzer Rebbe)
