Take the Elul 30 Day Learning Challenge
- Share This Story
To celebrate Elul, we invite you to take part in the “Elul 30 Day Learning Challenge,” a Jewish community initiative beginning on August 8! All community members are welcome to participate and receive 30 days of curated content for daily inspiration.
As Elul is the last month in the Jewish yearly cycle before Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish new year), it is viewed as a month of reflection on the previous year and looking forward to the next year. This message is particularly timely, as we move through the COVID-19 pandemic and reflect on opportunities for the year ahead.
With this focus, Elul is regarded as a month of Teshuva (forgiveness) or returning to a clean state. In the biblical tradition, on Rosh Chodesh Elul, Moses began his ascension to Mount Sinai for the third time, coming down 40 days later on Yom Kippur with the second set of Tablets and G-d’s complete mercy and forgiveness. Because of this, Elul has become the time for Teshuva and introspection.
