Elul is the Hebrew month leading up to the High Holy Days. During this month we are encouraged to take a deep look inwards at how we have responded to the blessings and challenges of the past year. It is a time for heshbon hanefesh, an accounting of the soul, where we examine who we are and who we wish to be in the coming year. It is a time of self-reflection, forgiveness, and exploration.
Join our WRN rabbis for a month of inspiring video teachings, sent via email, that will provide you with short kavanot, spiritual offerings to help you reflect, explore, and contemplate as you continue your journey into 5781, the Jewish new year.
This video project is curated by WRN member Rabbi Stephanie Kramer, who serves as senior associate rabbi of Congregation Shomrei Torah in Santa Rosa, CA.
