Wake Up / Elul is Here

Elul is the 12th and final month in the Jewish calendar.
It is a month that connects the past year with the coming year—a time when we reflect on where we stand and where we should be going. The theme of Elul is return to your essential self, a.k.a. teshuvah. In this month, the “King is in the Field,” and G‐d is readily accessible, willing to hear our requests and listen to our fervent prayers for the coming new year. Every day of Elul we blow the shofar and recite special Psalms in anticipation of the High Holidays, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
