56.01/ Week fifty-six, Aug. 7-13, 2021, thread begins here.

#ChodeshTov everyone! Happy #Elul, the "deep breath before the plunge" (as Gandalf says).

Week 55 thread is below.
56.02/ Excellent shibboleth action here from Rabbi Ruttenberg, in a benevolent, non-murdery, way, of course.

56.03/ Honored with #haftara yesterday but it had been so long since I last did one that my eyesight has gotten bad enough that I was juggling a mask, fogged glasses, & the too small print of even a full-size Artscroll. And why did Yeshayahu have to make up so many weird words?!

It is hard to think of any other religion or civilisation that has so predicated its very existence on putting children and their education first.
There have been affluent Jewish communities in the past that built magnificent synagogues – e.g. Alexandria in the 1st centuries of the Common Era. Yet because they did not put children first, they contributed little to the Jewish story. They flourished briefly, then disappeared.

#ChodeshTov! During #Ellul I will be sharing some short #EllulThoughts to help us all get in the right mindset as we approach #RoshHashanah and #YomKippur. I hope you enjoy these and find them meaningful. Please feel free to share and retweet if you wish.
These quotes will mainly come from the introductions to my #RoshHashanah & #YomKippur machzorim (published by Koren Publishers Jerusalem); others will come from my two ‘Letters to the Next Generation’ booklets - which can both be downloaded as PDF files from my website.
Here is the link to download the PDF for ‘Letters to the Next Generation: Reflections on Yom Kippur’ - rabbisacks.org/wp-content/upl…
