Beginner Elul Shiurim


  Elul: Targeting Underlying Motivations
The month of Elul is the easiest time for introspection.
But this time around, no more rehashing what we tried
to change last year and the year before. This Elul Rav Berkovits examines our 'wishful thinking patterns' that
trigger our deeper motivations.

  Setting My Mind for Elul
The month of Elul which falls just before the holidays
is the designated time for introspection and change.
Instead of rehashing all those things we tried changing
last year and the year before, let's look a little closer
at the underlying 'wishful thinking patterns' that motivated
us, but didn't quite have enough steam to affect a change.


Intermediate Elul Shiurim


  Elul - Educating Your Wife
For many wives, the experience of 10 Days of Awe
consists of cooking, kids and keeping house. In this
two part class Rabbi Berkovits firstly explains how a responsible husband, particularly during the month of
Elul, can encourage his wife to grow, and in what ways
he can help lessen her burden. In the second part hear practical ways he can share his daily acquired knowledge
with her - especially during the first year of marriage.
Learn the art of sharing life messages with the one you
love the most.






Advanced Elul Shiurim


Elul - The Teshuva Process - A Ten Part Series

  Elul: The Teshuva Process Part 1
Rabbi Berkovits examines the concept of time through the unique lense of Jewish philosophy. Different months hold
certain opportunities for growth that are not as accessible
at other moments throughout the year. What power is hidden within the month of Elul that we can tap into?

  Elul: The Teshuva Process Part 2
The choices we must make in life and the accountability
that comes along with that can be agonizing. Is the risk
of failure and punishment worth the free will? Explore
the role of the human being and the independence we
are given. What are we really asking for when we pray
for life on Rosh Hashana?

  Elul: The Teshuva Process Part 3
Oftentimes our plans for greatness seem to boomerang.
What is G-d telling us when our growth seems to backfire? Rabbi Berkovits teaches us how to deal with the mundane,
as well as giving straightforward guidance on how to chart
a map for acheiving a turnaround in areas we often stumble
in.
