Echoes of Elul 5781

TBS is pleased to announce the return of our popular blog called Echoes of Elul. The Echoes will be posted during the 29 days of Elul for members to view and contemplate as we prepare for the High Holy days.

Let’s work together and breathe life into this meaningful program again this year. We look forward to hearing from you!

The month of Elul begins on August 9th this year. Echoes are a compilation of personal reflections, insights, and memories. The format includes short essays, poetry, art and music. Introspection helps guide us as we reflect on the past year and move forward with faith, forgiveness, and renewal. Contributions are shared online with the congregation during Elul.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
