And the man said, “The woman whom you gave by me, she gave me from the tree, and I ate.”…And the woman said, “The serpent beguiled me and I ate.” The Midrash imagines that Adam and Eve had no remorse. It reads their response as referring to the future – not just I ate the forbidden fruit in the past, but I will eat from it again in the future. R’ Shmuel of Slonim explained the Midrash differently. True repentance happens when we use the same skill for a holy purpose. Adam and Eve responded that while they ate from the forbidden fruit in the past, in the future they will partake of Shabbat meals and in this way they will repent. Indeed, one view is that the forbidden fruit was a grape, and whenever we recite kiddush over wine we are repenting for the sin of Adam and Eve.
