Elul Reflections: Elul 1

We are used to judging by endings. We focus on a person's last days, or on the bad breakup, or the final inning that determines the game. But most of life is not the end and if there was joy in the journey, arias and intoxications, let us try to embrace that time. We are not defined by the last, but by all.

Let us consider the good that we have done prior to this year, how we have impacted those around us in positive ways. Perhaps we introduced a couple, or mended broken fences, or inspired positive living in others. Now may we seek to connect, over phone or email or Facebook or even in person with one of those people.
