Elul Day 35

THE PERSONAL HOLY OF HOLIES Before the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, the pinnacle of the Yom Kippur service was the moment when the High Priest (the Kohen Gadol) would enter the Holy of Holies. This was the only time of the year that anyone could enter this holiest of inner sanctums and only the High Priest was permitted to do so and only for a short duration. It was such an intense moment that if the High Priest was not completely pure—if he had committed even one transgression for which had had not previously atoned—he would die immediately. This was because the Holy of Holies...

Elul – Day 31

Tishrei 2, Second Day of Rosh Hashana   THE DAY OF CORONATION   The idea of Rosh Hashana as the day when we “coronate” G-d as the King of the Universe, may be one of the strangest and hardest to accept for those of us raised in modern, democratic societies. To us kings are corrupt despots at worst, and characters out of fairy tales at best.

On Rosh Hashana we accept upon ourselves G-d as the one and only absolute authority who rules over...

HIS MERCY ENDURES FOREVER Sometimes we have a lot of trouble believing that – especially when one is going through a lot of trials and tribulations that never seem to end. Our faith weakens and falters. But let’s take a look at a few bible characters and see if we can increase that weakened faith.

Sinai and was greeted full force with blatant idolatry by the ones he had just led out of Egypt. The sin...

Elul 8 Are you able to step out? We’ve talked about our Elohim being ‘in the field’, being right there where you live, right there, accessible to anyone that chooses to accept the invitation. However, many will simply turn around and go the other way, many will not even look up. Are you one of those? In the beginning, God gave us the power, the ability to love each other through what He did around us. When He split Adam into male and female, we were given the opportunity to ‘return’ to each other and learn  how to love and be one (echad) again. It would take...
