The Hebrew month of Elul is a time focused on spiritual fulfillment and self-reflection. As in years past, we root our Cheshbon HaNefesh, accounting of the soul, in a piece of text and the wisdom of our ancestors. It is traditional to do this work during the month of Elul, preparing ourselves for the holy days ahead and reflecting on the past year’s ups and downs, twists and turns before we enter the new year of 5780. Each reflection is a piece of our Jeremiah Gems – bringing insight, beauty, and appreciation into our lives.
This year’s theme comes from Pirkei Avot 4:17 – Better one hour of repentance and good deeds in This World than the entire life of the World to Come.
