During the month of Elul, we traditionally spend time preparing for the upcoming High Holy Days. Introspection, self-evaluation and prayer help guide us through the month as we spend time reflecting on our lives and choices.
This year, Temple Beth Sholom is pleased to bring an element to our High Holy Day preparations with a congregation-wide blog called Echoes of Elul. Each day a reflection shared by various TBS members will be posted online.
As we spend these twenty-nine days preparing ourselves for the holiest days of the year, let us hear the call of the shofar that is sounded each morning. It is a call to open our hearts and minds, to fully engage in our own spiritual practice and to recognize that we are not alone in our need for transformation.
