The Basics of Judaism: Basic Values and Morality: Shunning Sinners:
Should we shun a person who has sinned?
It would make sense for people to shun a person who was guilty of a
KARESS offense, so he is "cut off from his people"; but in practice
we shun only someone who has been put under a ban (CHEREM) by the
Rabbis. Also, a person can be forgiven for a KARESS offense if he
was flogged (see Talmud Makkos 13b).
