Be Strong and Courageous
Each person helps his neighbor
And says to his brother
Be strong and courageous.
What can I do today to offer kindness and love?
Where can I offer forgiveness and hope?
This final week of the year, we make a commitment to stop 100 times a day to notice beauty, to cultivate amazement, to offer gratitude, to open our senses and encounter the world with awe. This week's practices are wonder, awe and gratitude. It also is traditional to say Psalm 27 each morning during the month of Elul.
An Accounting of the Soul is a series of teachings and practices for each day of the month of Elul by Rabbi Yael Levy. Each week Rabbi Yael shares a teaching and practice as well as daily kavanot – intentions – to aid in heshbon hanefesh, an examination of who we are and what our words, actions and intentions have brought forth this past year.
