HUC-JIR is proud to be an Online Partner with this inspiring source of reflection during the 29 days of Elul that lead up to Rosh Hashanah. 

"Jewels of Elul III" (www.jewelsofelul.com) is released daily in concurrence with the 29 days in the Jewish month of Elul, a time set aside for thought and introspection in the month prior to Rosh Hashanah. Jewels of Elul III features contributions from an amazingly eclectic group of 29 individuals; from Elie Wiesel to the Dalai Lama, from the Mayor of Sderot to Deborah Lipstadt. Last year's collection, which is still available online, featured Rabbi David Ellenson. Collections are available both in a booklet and online. 

This year's Jewels collection is being supported by the American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem and is produced by Craig n' Co. HUC-JIR is proud to be an Online Partner with this inspiring source of reflection and with Craig Taubman, whose music continues to inspire the Reform movement and Jewish song and worship the world over.
