Back to School in Elul
What's Elul? It is the 12th and last month of the Jewish year. It's a month in which Jews take some time to think about the New Year: What will I do differently? What will I do the same? What do I need in order to succeed? It's kind of like going back to school. When we get to school the first day, we wonder: Who will my teacher be? How will this school year go?
