The UPJ Moetzah, the Progressive Rabbinic Council, has prepared a series of reflections for each of the 29 days in the month of Elul, the month preceding the High Holy Days, as a period of self-examination and spiritual deepening. Read more to learn how to subscribe to the daily emails.
The daily reflections will address: 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? It is our hope that these reflections will encourage meaningful preparation for the High Holy Days.
We wish you a meaningful, reflective Elul, and hope that your spirit and soul are nourished heading into the High Holy Days. Click on the sound file below to listen to Rabbi Gersh Lazarow sounding the shofar:
