Jewels of Elul 2011

Delighted to be blogging again this year for Jewels of Elul, which provides daily inspiration for a bit of soul work leading up to the High Holidays. They feature noted writers and leaders along with a daily sampling of more humble bloggers such as myself.

The background: The lunar month of Elul, which starts this year on Wednesday, August 31, leads up to Rosh HaShanah, one of the New Years on the Jewish calendar (it’s complicated). Ten days after Rosh HaShanah is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, one of the most intense days of the year. The month of Elul is thought of as a space to get ready for the hard, soul-searching work of facing our broken promises, our shortcomings, the times in the past year when we really missed the mark.
