We are in the midst of the final month of the Jewish year, Elul, when it's customary to review one’s shortcomings and make plans to do better in the coming year.
As an 11-year-old camper attending Camp Ramah in The Berkshires in the early 1980’s, I first leyned five verses – Deuteronomy 15: 7-11, in this week’s parsha, Re'eh, – that have grown to become among my favorites in the entire Torah.
