What I am Doing Every Day this Elul
Every day of Elul, I spend a few minutes thinking about my goals for this coming year. Rabbi Nivin says you can spend even just one minute a day reflecting on the year that was and the year that will be, but that one minute is a life-changer. Since every minute of introspection in Elul equals 10 minutes of introspection the rest of the year. That is why Rabbi Nivin calls Elul “International Deep Thinking Month.”
Elul is related to the Aramaic word meaning “to explore.” And that’s what I hope you will join me in doing during these weeks leading up to Rosh Hashana. Exploring your dreams and hopes and paths to a better year for you and your family in 5777, IY”H.
