Elul and its lead up to the Jewish New Year traditionally is the time to reflect on the year that has been, the ups and downs, the lefts and rights, the ins and outs.* But how have we been reflecting at JHub. Well I shall tell all….
Elul @ JHub started out in earnest at the beginning of September at the JHub ‘Hub Lunch’ for the residents. We were led, by Shoshana, in a part discussion, part lesson and part performance about why we blow/listen to the shofar every day in the month of Elul. We ended this fascinating session with Shoshana giving us a quick demonstration of how to blow a shofar. (I do have it on video but have promised not to upload it here, I may be swayed if there are any convincing comments)
The eagle-eyed amongst you might notice from this second picture that the writing is on the window. Well we have been using our/my favourite new JHub toy, sorry I should say tool – if my mother reads this please note that I don’t play with toys at work, liquid chalk pens.
Questions for individuals during Elul have been written on the windows including
- What world event has effected you this year?
- What is your 🙂 to 😦 ratio this year?
- How have you been looking after yourself?
