    You need an averia bucket list?!

    No, no aveiros chas vshalom, only some good (over) indulgence in some lasting, refreshing fun, pleasure, excitement, entertainment. You know, something GOOD to last through the blah, bleary, boring winter …

    Anyone??

    This premise is so against everything which Torah-true Yiddishkeit stands for. What would Rav Avigdor Miller, zt”l say?

    I don’t know what he would say. I’d rather not ask him now.

    You could start a ridiculous topic in the CR.

    Oh. You’ve already done that.

    Actually, until now I’d never made the connection between Elul and Lent. So you’re trying to do the equivalent of Mardi Gras?

    The poor guy just wants ideas of something to do in his last week of vacation before the new zman in yeshiva and everyone is giving him a hard time.

    #1030116

    Agreed, but it was poorly worded. That’s why everyone misunderstood.

    How about doing a duet in middle of the night out somewhere on a boat?

    I had a post planned but yehudayona beat me to it.

    Oh! I got it! The premise of this thread is Chukas Akkum!

    HaLeiVi:

    That would “sound” like fun. However

    1) We would need a lake

    2) a boat too

    3) someone to go with

    Actually that does sound like fun, get a couple of guys, some scotch, and dig some people up.

    Ooooh, digging people up? No, that’s not my cuppatea, believe me. Any thought of these morbid related and accessories causes me to get quite queasy, putting it mildly.

    So how about just bringing them up?

    #1030124

    Oh Shreck!

    Bringing them up? Mrs. Ov did, Shaul haMelech asked her too. (scary, it was head first)

    #1030125

    (Would it be any less scary, the other way around?!)

    #1030126

    Oh Shreck!

    Less scary for Mrs. Ov. She was nebach scared out of her wits.

    #1030127

    Chas veSholom! Nothing could be further removed from the truth.

    Ellul:- Serious-Absolutely! Sad-Absolutely not! We are reading the very last Parshiyos of the Toroh:- Sefer Devorim eagerly heading me’Eivel leSimcho from Devorim on Chazzon to veZos haberocho on Simchas Toroh.

    It is so wonderful anticipating a month long of Chaggim & intense closeness to haShem. As children the excitement of the approaching Chaggim was incredible; All this with no worries about cleaning out Chometz. & the days are getting shorter, so Motzei Shabbos will once again be at decent hours.

    When my kids were very little I made a special point of bringing them to Shul in Ellul to hear Tekias Shofor daily. Needless to say, I blow Tekias Shofor for my wife everyday before I head out to work.

    I think this must be a period to make amends with G-d, ourselves, and others. Kol shofar and the sound of selichot calls us to do exactly that: to recognize we’re sinners, often wretched, in a world that is characterized by brokenness, sadness, and yearning. May our teshuva and our sincere desires to reconnect with the RBSO result in a better world as we approach the new year.

    You’re not supposed to blow shofar b’yechidus in Elul. But I appreciate the effort.
