Jewels of Elul Vol. XII is a booklet filled with short, inspirational anecdotes and insights from some of the most impressive, famous and under-the-radar names who influence our global community. This year, our contributors will answer the question “what if” and their responses are nothing short of inspired.

For 29 days leading up to the High Holy Days, we are challenged to search our hearts and draw closer to the Divine. With 29 contributions, Jewels of Elul has enough soul-satisfying snippets to help you on your month-long journey and beyond.
