Parshat Shoftim – News & What’s On

The month of Elul always feels like a special time. It is a month of so many things, so many memories; anticipation for Rosh Hashanah, the house busy like a bee hive. The smell of honey cake, all the preparation and planning that goes into Yom Tov. Sending Shana Tova cards to loved ones, calling them on the phone. Trying to squeeze in a bit more kindness, another minute of prayer. So much preparation. Work to do inwardly, and work to do outwardly. It seems unbelievable that it’s almost Rosh Hashanah again.
