Catching Up With Lori

Welcome to the Jewish Month of Elul!

This is a very special time in the Jewish calendar, as we are now less than four weeks until Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Yes, even with Corona, ready or not, the High Holidays will come!

Trust me; it will be much easier to be ready than not.

Judaism teaches us that Elul is an acronym for “Ani l’Dodi, v’Dodi Li,” “I am to my beloved, as my beloved is to me.” It is a saying from the Song of Songs, written by King Solomon, and often quoted at weddings and engraved on rings. On the surface, it does speak about the love between a man and a woman. But on a deeper level, it is the ultimate love between G-d and the Jewish people.

When Elul comes, we reconnect with our Creator, rekindle love, and renew this most precious relationship. And this year, you can have the most powerful High Holidays ever, because of Corona! For most of us, we will not be fussing over what outfit to wear to synagogue, nor are we keeping up with the right page number in the prayer book, standing and sitting in time with the others.
This year, it’s just you and G-d.

Use this year’s situation as an opportunity to pray at home at your own pace, think deeply about lessons learned this year, and where you want to be at this time next year in the most important aspects of your life.

To help you, here’s the Momentum Boost webinar I did this week called “How to Land in the Book of Life“:

Don’t forget to download the packet that you can fill in with your new year’s plan for success.

Remember, if you don’t know where you are going, G-d can’t get you there.
