Elul Events, Coming Live Here at Musings!!

Elul starts Tuesday night, August 30. It is the month of repentance, the month leading the High Holidays.

MORE REPENTANCE. We don’t go deeper because we don’t look inside far enough. We don’t go higher because we don’t look high enough. We think repentance is dour and austere, but it is liberating. We think we have little to repent for because we don’t know the magnitude of God’s love. It’s not merely love, but inexorable love. And what we need inside us is not mere religion, but refined character.

Four online events during Elul on Wednesday nights starting August 31, from 9:00-10:00 p.m. E.S.T. (8:00-9:00 Central and 7:00-8:00 Pacific).

I will bring up some prayers and texts for the High Holidays, including some Mussar readings, readings from the Machzor, and discussion points about love, faith, and the character we were made to have as images of God. This will be a live event with discussion via blog comments.
