It’s summer time. Time to do whatever it is that you don’t have time to do during the regular season. Time to learn, plant, play, vacation, grow, rest, relax, work at a slower pace.
The question is what are you going to do in the summer that is Chesed related that you are unable to do during the rest of the year. Is there something you can’t fit in during the “school year” that you’re now able to add to your daily list of activities? Food for thought….
One thing that we can mention which may not be along the lines of summertime mode thinking is to add something spiritual to your day leading up to Rosh Hashana-the Jewish New Year. For most of us, thinking about the High Holidays in June is beyond our radar. And so it should be. But as we go into the summer months leading up to the High Holidays, doing something small with minimal effort can be a nice way to walk into the holiday season with something substantial under our belts. Even something as simple as praying from inside the Siddur (prayerbook) instead of reciting certain parts by heart is something we can all do.
May we all have a very productive summer!
