MONTH OF ELUL 2020/5780:
PREPARING FOR THE HIGH HOLY DAYS
The Hebrew month of ELUL is always meant to be a time for preparation and reflection. This year, as we celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur primarily from our homes, we will embrace this opportunity for intentional and sacred preparation in new and different ways.
Because we are living in the time of a pandemic, our High Holy Days this year will look different from years past, yet we believe they will feel similar.
We will also be embracing THE MONTH OF ELUL, the Hebrew month prior to Rosh Hashanah, and we invite you to join us in ELUL PROGRAMMING, in order to better prepare for the High Holy Days this year. Since most of our programs will be online, and people have limited attention while online, we hope these additional offerings will further prepare you for the New Year.
