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! This year, I'm not doing a linky or anything
like that -- I'm conserving energy! So be sure to tag your posts on
Twitter and Facebook so I can catch them with my alerts....
