Elul Reflections: 14 Elul 5780


And all that we really have,
and all that we can really give,
is presence.
Just to be present.

-- Rabbi Karyn Kedar, Amen: Seeking Presence with Prayer, Poetry, and Mindfulness Practice(CCAR Press, 2020), p. 73.

How can you be more present with your loved ones? With yourself? With God?
