On Elul: Introducing the Month of Preparation
Rabbi Ira Stone, Rosh Yeshiva, CCM, Philadelphia, PA
Rabbi Stone presented the theology of Chesbon HaNesesh, “Accounting of the Soul” as it emerges in both Mussar and the month of Elul in preparation for the High Holy Days. He also introduced the Unataneh Tokef prayer, a major piece of High Holy Day liturgy, to set the table for the remaining talks by the Rabbis of the Center for Contemporary Mussar.
