B’Yachad: Sharing the Gifts of Elul Together

 

During this unprecedented time of challenge when our regular schedules and ways of marking time have been disrupted, it is more important than ever to pay attention to the Jewish calendar and its wisdom. Thus with the arrival of the Hebrew month of Elul, we offer you multiple paths to walk through it together, b’yachad. It is meant to be a month of personal inventory. We are to contemplate where we have come from and where we are going. We are to ask ourselves where have we succeeded and where have we fallen short. For we simply do not jump into a New Year, we prepare for it. So as we enter Elul, may our self-reflections be fruitful and energize us!
