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.

In this new 10-part podcast, 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 Hasidic practice of hitbodedut, to try and fix her soul, and help you fix yours. Join her and a crew of unexpected and wise guides on this journey, a one-month journey to figuring out the hardest bits about being human.
