While it may seem that the Jewish holidays are "late" this year - actually, Rosh Hashanah is always right on time, on the first of Tishrei (though sometimes September can come early or late) - there is more to preparing for the new year than showing up to shul at the appointed time. Rabbi Alan Lew guides you on a spiritual journey starting with the month of Elul, going through the days of awe as part of the penitential season in Judaism.
Rabbi Lew is a gifted and sensitive thinker and writer. This is Real and You Are Completely Unprepared is a gem of a book! Official Jewish Book Mall rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.
