Elul 1: Light

by Hillel News |Aug 16, 2015|Comments

First Blast: Text

ה' אוֹרִי וְיִשְׁעִי מִמִּי אִירָא

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?

Second Blast: Commentary

Psalm 36:10 says “In Your light, we see light.” As we embark on this month of Elul, we begin the process of introspection and self-accounting, which in some sense is an attempt to see things in God’s light or from a different perspective. Doing so helps us to understand where we need to grow and change. 

Third Blast: Practice

Try to be more aware of the light you encounter during the day: the sunlight when you step outside or the light switch you turn on when you enter the room. How does the light change your perspective on what you look at?
