I was driving home from prayer service Saturday, almost home. I was in a very peaceful place, at least I thought I was. Then it happened. Someone driving a very large SUV entered the roadway through a yield– but did not yield. She started coming into my lane, very quickly. I immediately hit the brakes, laid on the horn, and well, patience was lost. Because I stopped, I signaled for her to go in front of me, thinking she was in such a hurry. When we met at the stoplight, she said she was so sorry, she didn’t mean to cut me off. By then I had composed myself again, and told her it was okay, but to please be careful so that she reached her destination safely.

Summer is Over

Summer is over. The solstice and Jewish New Year are passing. For many of us, it is a time of reflection and re-beginnings. Unlike the “January 1st” New Year, I start mine off in prayers. Many spent this past month reflecting on the year just ending. What we did and what can we do better?

Call to Action

Now that we have entered the Hebrew month of Elul, some of us, depending on where we live, hear a strange sound in the morning. In most orthodox neighborhoods, the shofar (ram’s horn) is blown every day. The purpose of this is to awaken us from our complacency.

The Hebrew month before the Jewish New Year is called Elul. This month is the time to get spiritually ready to face the new year. It is time to take inventory of my past year. What have I done that missed the mark? What did I do that I am proud of? How could I have done things differently?
