Songs of Elul by Yosef Goldman from Spotify
These are songs to awaken your spirit before the Days of Awe. They are songs from the liturgy of Selichot & High Holy Days, with an eclectic mix of songs of love and longing and the many moods of the season. A great way to prep for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Best listened to on shuffle. #Teshuvah
The total collapse of Jewish and Israeli PR by SHMULEY BOTEACH
From the beginning of my rabbinic career, I focused mightily on public relations and disseminating the Jewish message to the world. I was accused of being publicity-hungry and of shallowness. But I knew that the one area where we Jews have so significantly failed was in public relations. And this has been true throughout the centuries.

I don’t know Rabbi, did it ever occur to you that maybe the reason so many have accused you of being publicity-hungry and shallow is because you’ve spent the last 40 years or so co-opting the worst excesses of the self-help genre to do your bit to strip Judaism down to its cheapest parts so you could make it a pop culture sensation?
