Rosh Chodesh Elul Program

10Q -- 10 questions for 10 days

Led by Elana Premack Sandler

Sunday, September 15, 10:30 AM

At the home of Natalie Graham


The 10 days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are known as the Days of Awe, a time when we reflect and seek forgiveness before our fates for the new year are sealed.  These days are an opportunity to look at where you're at, where you've come from, and where you're heading. For our Elul program, Elana Premack Sandler will be our guide as we prepare to take stock of 5779 and look ahead to 5780 using a tool that brings this ancient observance into the digital age -- an online forum for reflection called 10Q.  Participants in the project sign up via a website and then receive a question for reflection by email on each of the 10 days, along with a link to a private and personal space for response.  At the end of the ten days, participants have a week post-Yom Kippur to reflect further and consider sharing answers with the 10Q editorial staff and the wider audience, either anonymously or attributed.  Answers are saved and sent back to participants just before the following Rosh Hashanah. 

For more information on 10Q, see:  Please join us for this chance to connect with old friends and make new ones! To RSVP click on or contact Katherine Ralston (katherine [dot] ralston [dot] slott [at] gmail [dot] com or 240-367-3349), or the OKC Office (tlautman [at] ohrkodesh [dot] org or 301-589-3880).
