In Av we explored the meaning of Strength. Now in Elul, we must find the strength to Journey alone. Elul is a month of private reflection and inward turning. We turn inward, so we are ready to stand in-front of our community at the Days of Awe and state our case to be written and sealed in the Book of Life. We look inward and make private confessions before our communities leaders recite the Kol Nidre on our behalf. We look inward, before we join our community to recite the communal confessions of the Al Chet and Ashamnu.
