18 Aug #TheWell30Days
Yesterday was the first day of Elul, the month leading up to Rosh HaShanah, the Jewish New Year. I am joining #TheWell30Days and will be sharing my thoughts and reflections on IFFP’s facebook page. For today, I will share that I will be reading at least some of “The Palm Tree of Devorah” a work by Kabbalistic mystic Rabbi Moshe Cordovero this month. This book called to me recently while browsing in a Jewish bookstore. I know that my teacher Rabbi Laura Duhan Kaplan is a big fan of Cordovero. It turns out this is a traditional text to study during this time of year up through Yom Kippur. Coincidence? Guidance? Serendipity? You decide.
