Getting Ready: Elul

Before we celebrate Rosh Hashanah, we have to prepare. Our tradition uses the month of Elul for a practice called cheshbon ha’nefesh, an accounting of the soul. Use these pages to reflect on the past year, take responsibility for where you might have made mistakes and do some spiritual accounting. And don’t worry, there isn’t any math.

Reflection Questions
What am I proud of in this past year? 
What do I regret? 
From whom must I ask forgiveness?
Whom must I forgive? 
What can I release from the past year?
What do I want to embrace in the year to come?
