Our Jewish tradition teaches us to dedicate the 29 days in the month of Elul, the month preceding the High Holy Days, as a period of self-examination and spiritual deepening. Clearly, this is easier said than done. How can we focus, for a full month, on spiritual deepening? In what ways should we examine ourselves? How can we adequately prepare for the holiest days of our year?
The UPJ Moetzah, the Progressive Rabbinic Council, has prepared a series of reflections on the above themes – one for each day in the month of Elul. It is their hope that these reflections will encourage meaningful preparation for the High Holy Days.
Rosh Chodesh Elul falls on 23 August. If you would like to receive the daily email, each containing a new Elul reflection, please e-mail [email protected] to subscribe.
We wish you a meaningful, reflective Elul, and hope that your spirit and soul are nourished heading into the High Holy Days.
