When we think of a seder, most of us probably think of Passover. We often associate the seder with the Haggadah, a festive (chameitz-free) dinner, and the ornate seder plate assorted with symbolic foods. However, Passover isn’t the only time of the Jewish year in which we can have a seder.
I often hear my yoga teachers' words when I embark on a new project or endeavor. Today, as we get ready to usher in the month of Elul, the preparatory month for the High Holidays, I keep thinking to myself: What is my intention?
With deep gratitude to the Righteous Persons Foundation, we invite you to visit reflect.reformjudaism.org and to share this opportunity far and wide with your community.
