It is hard to believe that we are already at the end of August, which also signifies the end of summer and the beginning of the school year. Hopefully, many of us are able to grab a few days off between now and Labor Day to refresh and recharge before the Yom Tov season.
Next week we will already begin reciting Selichot after Shabbat. We will do so through Erev Yom Kippur. As you think of what you may want to "Take on" to get ready for the Teshuva season, perhaps you should consider committing to saying the Selichot each day. That will certainly get you in the mood.
I hope to see you there.
