As we approach Elul, the month prior to Rosh Hashanah, we begin to think about the chaggim, engage in "cheshbon hanefesh," the accounting of our soul, the self-measuring of our lives over the past year. To share some of that "accounting," Sh'ma bloggers reflect on and write about any holiday text, liturgy, or reading that most disturbed or resonated with them.
Visit the S Blog throughout the month to read the daily inspirational and thought-provoking reflections of rabbis, communal activists, educators.
