Turn us unto you, O Lord,
and we shall return.
Renew our days as of old.
We are a people easily distracted and often so busy with what is good we miss what is best. Elul causes us to pause in the noise and clutter of our lives and consider the precious gift of teshuvah* – a gift meant not only for this special season but for every day of our lives.
We hope you will be blessed by this compilation of a selection of thoughts of spiritual leaders, which reflect the beautiful essence of this precious season of teshuvah.
* Teshuvah is translated repentance but is a Hebrew term meaning to turn or return – a return to a right relationship with G-d.
