I’d like to believe that as Jews around the world prepare for erev Rosh Hashanah tonight, and the start of the month of Tishrei, that our reflections and realizations over the month of Elul help us be motivated to act. It’s not easy, but I’d like to think of it as justice of a sort. Not justice in the sense of vengeance, or justice in the sense of punishment, but justice in the sense of setting to right wrongs. We seek to do teshuvah between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, to repair what is broken, to heal what is hurt, to mend what is torn, whether that be internally or externally. And that to me is a kind of justice in and of itself, that we are actively seeking to make good. To balance. To say “I’m sorry” and seek forgiveness. Powerful stuff.
