Recently I was asked to contribute to an article by ELI Talks – a kind of Jewish TED Talks on issues and ideas that impact Jewish community. The question I responded to was: What kind of practices do you do in Elul?
Read the article HERE.
As I shared recently in this blog post: Elul: Cycles of Mourning and Memory, Elul is a time for introspection and a natural cyclical time that often brings up memory and challenges to those who have lost loved ones. I shared some practices typical in that sphere.
But there are other practices of Elul to help bring more presence to the work of introspection, acknowledgement and, dare I say it, improvement for the future. I’d love to share a few of these that ELI Talks included in their recent article at E-Jewish Philanthropy. Perhaps some of these might be of interest or useful to you as you head towards the awe-some, high and holy days.
