Shoftim Part Two

The annual cycle of Torah readings is so arranged that parshat SHOFTIM, “Judges”, is always read on the first Shabbos of the month of Elul, season of compassion and repentance when all hearts yearn to come back to the Source. The opening words of the parshat — “Appoint judges and police for yourselves in all your gates” — contain a personal message for all of us. The key step in coming back to G-d is when we “appoint judges and police” for OURSELVES — in the gates of our own minds and souls.
