How to Fix a Soul in 30 Days

The Hebrew month of Elul is upon us but Jewish tradition, which has a lot to say about every single aspect of each and every other observance, is silent on Elul. How should we prepare? What does our soul require? That’s up to us to find out. Kylie Unell, a doctoral student in Jewish thought, a thinking Jew, and a perpetually wondering person, will try anything, from doubling down on prayer to the Hassidic practice of Hitbodedut, to try and fix her soul, and help you fix yours.
