The Hebrew Month of

ELUL

The Jewish Calendar

What is Elul?

The Hebrew month of Elul  is an auspicious time for getting closer to God.  Elul is the month that precedes the Jewish Days of Awe - it kicks off the 40 days that lead up to the holiest day of the Jewish year, Yom Kippur...

So how does one tap into this special month and find favor in G-d's eyes?

Perhaps the  key is found in 4 WORDS that appear in the Talmud, 

Source: Tractate Brachot 17A

"Beloved Above and Desirable Below"

״אהוב למעלה ונחמד למטה״

"Ahuv Lemalah Venehmad Lemata"

if you want to become beloved above,  in the eyes of G-d... (Ahuv Lemala) Then you have to be  desirable down here. Be Kind, generous and gracious to others. (Nehmad Lemata)

And it's no surprise that the acronym of those 4 words spelled in Hebrew come out to:

ELUL

אלול

אהוב  למעלה ונחמד למטה

Ahuv  Lemala Vnechmad Lemataa

because that is the secret to finding favor in G-d's eyes.

"Beloved Above and Desirable Below"

"Ahuv Lemalah Venehmad Lemata"

Have an uplifting

ELUL

Thanks for watching.
