The Elul Top Thirty: A soundtrack for the season

Each year during the month of Elul (September 1 this year) we turn inward as we prepare ourselves for the High Holy Days in order to experience them as fully as possible.

We think about who we are and who we want to be. Whose forgiveness do we need in order for us to enter a new year with a clean slate?

Many of us turn to music for inspiration during this period, and so for your listening pleasure and inspiration, B'nai Havurah is seeking your help in creating a soundtrack for Elul so that we might all be inspired.

Using the form, below, send us the song title and artist's name that best captures the spirit of the month FOR YOU and we'll send you a YouTube song each day of the 30 days of Elul!

Need an example or two? Joan Wallis, our High Holy Day chair selected "Anthem" by Leonard Cohen; Rabbi Evette's selection is "Back to December" by Taylor Swift, and Becky Epstein our executive director turns to "Let it Go" from Frozen when it's time for introspection.

B'nai Havurah members and friends: Ready, set, go! Submit your song selection(s) for inspiration and introspection no later than September 7 --  It will only take a moment or two (see below)!

Please make your submission for our Elul Top Thirty below:
Please note: Each individual is encouraged to submit one song only. We will do our best to include all submissions and compile an Elul Top 30 that will inspire and prepare you for our High Holy Days!
