Elul and Teshuvah: A Season of Transformation
Wednesday, September 14, 7:30 – 8:30 pm
Elul, the Hebrew month preceding the High Holidays, is a time for soul-searching and repentance. In our interactive session, we will explore the dynamics of teshuvah (repentance) in Biblical and Medieval sources and in the experiences of our own lives. Our study will also include an exploration of Elul rituals, the spiritual tool-kit we are given to work our way towards personal transformation. Together we will sing, sit, and deepen our experience of the power of the High Holidays.
