The Hebrew month of Elul, which this year begins the evening of Aug. 26, is a time of introspection for Jews around the world as we prepare for the High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Last year, on our podcast How to Fix a Soul in 30 Days Kylie Unell, a doctoral student in Jewish thought, used the month of Elul as a template for introspection and self-improvement. The insights from her journey remain relevant—and relatable—as we enter Elul once again.

Episode 1: Kylie begins a journey of reflection.
