Elul Opportunities

We are excited to offer various opportunities to prepare for the High Holidays during the Hebrew month of Elul. Below, please find descriptions of our offerings.

Several of our Elul offerings are provided via the Jewish Mindfulness Center of St. Louis. For more details/information on the Center and all it has to offer, click HERE to visit its website.


Elul Email Blog

The Hebrew month of Elul (the month preceding the High Holidays) is a time for us to engage in reflection. When you sign up for the email blog, you will receive a daily email throughout the month that contains one word, idea, or practice to assist you in your spiritual preparations. Join us on this thoughtful journey. Sign up here.
