Harry Potter thoughts in preparation for the High Holidays

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:

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