Reviewing Our Year Through Imagination and Memory with Eve Ilsen 

As the days noticeably shorten, the season naturally turns us towards introspection: looking at what’s inside. Our own tradition rides this autumnal wave towards the High Holy Days with skillful and deep-reaching practices of cheshbon ha-nefesh—taking account of one’s soul— in preparation for the High Holy Days and the renewal of the year and of ourselves.

Eve Ilsen will lead a review of the closing year in a structured way, piece by piece, in the privacy of our own imaginations and memory, through the Imaginal exercises of her teacher, the late Mme. Colette Aboulker-Muscat. Such a review, done privately-together, helps us see clearly our accomplishments and our lacks, our virtues and our flaws, and leads us towards knowing what repairs we may make to effect true tikkun. This is the work of Elul. Eve Ilsen is a rebbetzin, rabbinic pastor, psychotherapist, storyteller and singer in Boulder, CO. 


The beautiful liturgy and melodies of Selichot set the emotional and spiritual mood for the High Holidays and invite us into the themes of forgiveness and compassion.
