Minding the gates of our souls

The wake-up call of the shofar: Upgrading who we are in the month of Elul.

Yitzchak Reuven ,

Arutz Sheva

Getting down to the spiritual business of upgrading who we are in the month of Elul Is echoed in this week's Torah reading of Shoftim - Judges - who we appoint to judge in the gates of our cities and also in the portals of our hearts and souls.

The sublime sound of the shofar is a call to HaShem that we are still here.
