Is it possible to reconcile these two ideas?
- People don’t change; they just become more of who they are.
- The High Holidays give us an opportunity to take an accounting of our souls and make changes in ourselves.
If it’s not impossible, it certainly isn’t easy…just like the work of this season.
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 precede the Jewish High Holidays and traditionally serve as a time of reflection and spiritual preparation for the new year.
