Where exactly are you in your spiritual journey? Just like any journey we begin, if we don’t take some time to pause and reflect on where we are headed, we may find ourselves completely lost. In today’s podcast episode, host Yael Eckstein walks us through an ancient biblical Jewish practice – one Jesus likely participated in – that happens during the Hebrew month of Elul, which began this month. During Elul, the Jewish people begin preparing themselves spiritually for High Holy Days, which begins with Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and concludes on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Jews take this yearly 30-day challenge to lay the groundwork for real and lasting change by doing an intense spiritual checkup. As Yael shows us, it takes a full 30 days to connect with God, nourish our souls, and make spiritual changes that last. As we’ll learn, this Jewish version of a “30-day challenge” can set us up for a successful year to come as well as a blessed life ahead.
