Rosh HaShana and Yom Kippur are coming soon...

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:

Percy's repentance:

Even Malfoy's or Wormtail's repentance counts:

Harry Potter's advice of feeling remorse:

More notes about repentance:

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