Thank you for joining me, on a 29 days journey as we undertake a “cheshbon nefesh,” “accounting of the soul.” We will ask questions covering 29 traits, or middot one for each day of the month of Elul.
The Hebrew month of Elul
The Hebrew month of Elul offers us an opportunity to prepare for the High Holy Days ahead. It is a time of introspection. The Torah inspires us to develop our character, Tikkun Middot, becoming better people by correcting our faults and improving our character.

What Is Self-reflection? השתקפות עצמית
Self-reflection is the process of diving deep into your thoughts, emotions and motivations and determining the great, “Why?” behind them.
Self reflection is a gift to yourself. Take the time to think about, meditate on, evaluate your behaviors, thoughts, attitudes, motivations, and desires.. You may also wish to keep a list of people from whom you need to seek forgiveness, and another list of those you wish to forgive.
