The month of Elul will be nearly half over by the time you read this. It’s the month when Jews take stock of the year just passed, in preparation for the Days of Awe (Yamim Noraim) or High Holidays. This is a spiritual task, an “accounting of the soul” (cheshbon hanefesh).

Often, this kind of preparation seems to take a back seat to preparing for the meals and rituals of the holidays, which is the focus of most of the content in this High Holiday Planner issue.
