#BlogElul 15: Health
I got nothing.
Today's topic!? Who picked these darn things anyway!? (Oh right, me.)
I am living in a world that is consumed with health right now.
And I just can't even summon the words.
To tell you about how we treasure our health.
About how Judaism teaches that we should treat our bodies as though they are sacred and precious vessels.
To tell you about the prayers for the workings of our internal organs.
I just can't.
So I'll just tell you that September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.
Go find a good way to help out.
The Jewish month of Elul, which precedes the High Holy Days, is traditionally a time of renewal and reflection. It offers a chance for spiritual preparation for the Days of Awe. It is traditional to begin one’s preparation for the High Holy Days during this month with the Selichot, the prayers of forgiveness. We look to begin the year with a clean slate, starting anew, refreshed. All month, along with others, I'll be blogging a thought or two for each day to help with the month of preparation... I will be blogging here, and sharing #Elulgram photos on the same themes at imabima.tumblr.com. Follow me on twitter @imabima for all the #BlogElul posts, not only mine but others' as well!
