Welcome to Elul Meditations
Sign up here to receive Elul emails
The month of Elul is the Hebrew month immediately preceding the Yamim Hanora'im, the Days of Awe. Elul has traditionally been a time for spiritual preparation. A time to begin thinking about the themes and issues we address at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services.
I post an "Elul Meditation" each day of Elul (except on Shabbat). Some are longer, some are shorter. Some are more traditional, some may be a bit unexpected. None of these are original to me. Rather, this is a collection of short readings I've curated over the years from a variety of sources. I have included the citation of authorship in every possible case.
If you think you would enjoy reading an Elul Meditation each morning (From Sunday, September 1st through the eve of Rosh Hashanah, September 29th), just fill in the form below.
Please share this information with anyone you think might be interested. I will not share your email address with anyone. At all.
