A moment of reflection with Rabbi Jessica Lott

The month of Elul is time for 30 days of spiritual preparation as we lead up to the intense period of the High Holidays. A commentary on the Song of Songs notes that the letters ELUL are an acronym for the famous verse: "Ani L'Dodi Ve'Dodi Li" “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” The work of taking stock of who you have been, including your mistakes and your triumphs, is deeply connected to love. When we have love in relationships and communities, we can take the risk of being honest and reflective, and become our best selves.  

Jessica Lott, Campus Rabbi, Northwestern Hillel
