The goal of Elul is awakening us spiritually. What are we trying to wake up to?

  • Trusting that everything in our life is from Hashem. He has created this loving tailor-made journey for our training and development.

  • Trusting that Hashem loves us unconditionally. He recognizes the difficult battles we fight and thinks we’re amazing.

  • Yearning to do what Hashem wants us to do; to do His will. Our greatest effort is to reach out to Hashem. He is waiting for our pure call.

Every day from Rosh Chodesh Elul through Yom Kippur, pause. Ask Hashem to help us wake up! Ask Him to upgrade our life!
