Rae Shagalov inspires our Teshuva this year in a lovely way on her beautiful art blog, and also her YouTube video.
Four words beginning with the letter R make it easier to remember what we think about this month of Elul, but not necessarily easier to DO, right?
But remembering is truly the first step. We are so busy and distracted that simply remembering to consider Teshuva during Elul is a big deal.
I have so grown so much this Elul 5774 in membership classes offered by Jewish Workshops and led by Rabbi Akiva Tatz. Here's a wonderful Elul teaching by Rabbi Tatz where you'll find world-class Jewish teaching at no cost, 24/7.
In a special Rosh Hashana webinar today Rabbi Tatz said, "Teshuva works because it removes your will from the sin... You disowned it, detached your name from it."
Sounds good to me! L'Shanna Tova 5775 to one and all!
