The Hebrew month of Elul, as a precursor to the High Holidays, carries great weight in Jewish tradition. During this month, it is customary to reflect on the past year and study Jewish texts that prepare us for the year ahead. 

Join the ERJCC for four weeks of stimulating classes that will get you in spiritual and intellectual “shape” to start the new year right.  You can register for individual classes, which are all free.  Please register here on the ERJCC website.
