Harry Potter thoughts in preparation for the High Holidays

Sorry everyone that I haven't written Harry Potter and Torah essays for the past several months -- in the past six months I've gotten remarried, moved two homes into a new home, and taken a blended family on a vacation abroad. It hasn't been boring!

Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur are now officially a month away, and we've started the Jewish month of Elul in which we prepare for the holidays. In that spirit, here are links to some essays I wrote previously on Harry Potter themes related to the High Holidays:

Harry Potter and the Power of Repentance:

Even Malfoy's or Wormtail's repentance counts:

I hope that everyone has had a great summer, and hope to have more Harry Potter and Torah thoughts for you soon!
