My Jew Years Resolutions Workbook
'Tis the season, fellow educators! Camp is ending, school hasn't yet started, and as we run around in go-mode, there's a palpable shift in the Jewish calendar. It's the month of Elul, the last month of the Jewish year. This is a time of reflection on the past year, preparation for the upcoming chagim, and the all-important soulful accounting that each of us is called to in a unique way.
Elul wasn't something I was mindful of for many years. Theoretically I knew it existed, but the understanding of this intentional reflective time wasn't something I was aware of, and once I knew about it, I didn't exactly jump to take advantage. Late summer for me has always been about finding the balance between laziness and manic to do listing, so to add spiritual reflection to that combo seemed excessive.
But all of that changed when I dipped a toe into this season, and fell in love with the ritual, and the true gift that taking stock of my spiritual well-being is. So this year, I'm inviting you to join me by using this handy Jew Years Resolution workbook. I'm making it easy and fun for you to take some time to yourself before the season of back to back (to back) holidays rolls around, to think about how you as an educator/Jew/human/however else you identify want to approach the next stage.
I hope that you'll join me in committing to personal Jewish growth this year. I'll be sharing my Jew Years Resolutions next week, and I invite you to do so as well. If you're interested in a spiritual hevruta/accountability buddy, simply fill out your name and email address and I'll be in touch with you to set up check in times throughout the year so we can hold each other accountable to our goals. This will give you 1:1 access to me, and exclusive gifts/resources/materials, all meant to help you achieve your dreams in 5779.
