Why focus on repentance only during Elul and the Ten Days of Repentance?
I’m bothered by something that I see repeating itself every year. The month of Elul comes and especially the Ten Days of Repentance and everyone tries to be “big tzaddikim”, getting up early to pray and saying Selichot, learn Torah scrupulously, give a lot of charity, and in general trying to become a better Jew (me too), but what happens during the rest of the year? Of what use is “repenting” for 40 days if there is no continuation to my improvements during the rest of the year? Why can’t we continue being good for the rest of the year too?

How Can we Fulfill the Recollection of Going Out of Egypt if Archeological Findings Claim Differently?
I learn with a non-religious young man who is interested in Judaism.
