#BlogElul: End

The end of Elul is approaching. With each passing day, I have an increased desire to skip the High Holidays entirely this year. (No, it has nothing to do with the new rabbi – or any of the clergy.)

A rabbi friend tells me that among some, this is a Jewish tradition.


Inspired by Ima on (and off) the Bima, this #BlogElul post is one in a series marking the days of the Hebrew month of Elul, which precedes the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serves as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
