Elul 2: Act

I have to sleep on it.

I always go with my gut.

She shoots from the hip.

It has to feel right.

Regardless of the process, we all eventually have to take action.  Because if we don’t, we will always find ourselves in the same place.

What action will you take on this year? Where do you want to GO?

PS.  I know there is some irony that this post is a day late.  But, as Rabbi Tarfon taught, “…we cannot refrain from doing the work.”


The Jewish month of Elul, which precedes the High Holy Days, is traditionally a time of renewal and reflection. It offers a chance for spiritual preparation for the Days of Awe. It is traditional to begin one’s preparation for the High Holy Days during this month with the Selichot, the prayers of forgiveness. We look to begin the year with a clean slate, starting anew, refreshed. All month, along with others, I’ll be blogging a thought or two for each day to help with the month of preparation… #blogElul

    I also thought the late post was funny since these are all action verbs- but I needed an extra day to complete my new “live Jewishly” thing to do. To book tickets to Israel. Haven’t been since our lovely NFTY Advisors in Israel trip in 2007.
