Once again, the month of Elul is upon us and at the end of September, Rosh Hashanah.
This yearly cycle gives us all the opportunity for cheshbon hanefesh, or engaging in an audit or accounting of the soul. This accounting provides us the time to consider how we might improve our personal lives and rectify wrongs done to others.
Personal soul audits are not the only audits we can perform. Our congregation also looks at its collective soul, which is grounded in UHC’s mission statement. What have we accomplished as a congregation? What more can we do to live out our mission statement?
