The Jewish month of Elul is to a Jew like writing is to our heart. It cleanses us, gets rid of our excess pain, and brings us a new beginning. Elul is the time when we introspect and reflect. Writing helps us do that, too. Elul is the time to connect to our inner selves. And what connects us more than writing?
Therapeutic writing allows us access to our inner world, with exercises that enable us to grow, understand ourselves, and change our lives for the better. In this unique journal, Certified Journal Facilitator Yocheved Rottenberg offers a guide full of both Torah sources and writing exercises that will help its readers approach the new year in a more conscious and connected way.
This journal will change your year. Try it!

Yocheved's book and classes have been life changing! So much deep beautiful healing work is possible with her journal and a pen and is a must for this time of the year. I can't recommend it enough!
I am so excited to do the journaling prompts right after learning and reading the insights the author shares in this book. The author brings so much background and learning that feels relevant and applicable to my life. I thought I was just getting journaling prompts. But I really got a whole book with so much inspirational and deep insights about Elul. I believe it's going to be a journey into my self and I feel so privileged to be able to take this journey straight into Rosh Hahshana. Got so much more than my money's worth!! Highly recommended!
"I've taken some writing courses with Yocheved over the last few years, so looked forward to receiving her new book Writing Your Way Through Elul. To say that I was not disappointed is an understatement, as it exceeded my expectations. Yocheved has the ability to engage both our seichel, our intellect, and our heart simultaneously. Her insightful, targeted writing prompts enable us to go deeply within, and to tap into our intuitive wisdom without distraction. The word transformative is often overused, but I believe in this context it is totally appropriate...
Yocheved has gifted us with a treasure chest. All we need to do is to take pen in hand, open the front cover, and mine the diamonds."
