A correspondent on why Michael Chetkof and Allyson will burn in Hell

Dear Norman,
I read your quote from the Mishnah in the article DAY OF ATONEMENT:
“He who says, ‘I will sin, and repent: I will sin and repent’; he will never achieve repentance.  ‘I will sin and the Day of Atonement will atone’; the Day of Atonement does not atone.  Transgressions between man and God—the Day of Atonement atones.  Transgressions between man and his neighbor—the Day of Atonement does not atone, until he appeases his neighbor.” (Mishnah, Yoma 8.9.)
