As the Hebrew month of Elul focuses on preparations for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, Rabbi Steven Weil, Executive Vice President of the Orthodox Union, returns to Congregation Bnai Yeshurun in Teaneck to present a three-part “Elul and Teshuva Series” dedicated to this special period of self-introspection and repentance.

The Bnai Yeshurun Elul Summer Learning Beis Medrash Program, back by popular demand, will be held Thursday evenings at 8:00 p.m. on August 9, August 30, and September 6, at the OU member synagogue, 641 W. Englewood Avenue. The classes are free and open to all.

Rosh Hashana begins sundown of Monday, September 17. Yom Kippur begins sundown of Tuesday, September 25.

During the course of the series, Rabbi Weil will explore “Mindfields: The Rambam’s Analysis of the Six Spiritual Roadblocks That Preclude Teshuva” (August 9); “Why Will This New Year Be Different from All Other Years? Five Profound Insights into Teshuva From the Works of The Rav” (August 30) and “The Fascinating and Sublime World of the Rosh HaShana Machzor” (September 6).

As Rabbi Weil noted, “The machzor contains some of the most sublime and abstract prayers of the year. The series will focus on analyzing the meaning and developing the motifs of these prayers.”
