As Elul dawns on us this week, don’t forget to remember all the tasks left undone, but remember to forget any trivial indignities you might have endured or any petty arguments.
Traditionally, Elul is the time for each and every one of us to take stock in our activities, to evaluate the past and to prepare for the High Holidays. That time is upon us.
The AGJC will hold a joint Selichot event for the 6 Gulf Countries: Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and the United Arab Emirates.

Elul begins the time of reflection on the year past and trying to improve in the upcoming year.

Soon, each of us will begin our heshbon nefesh, our soul-searching.
