Elul is the 12th month of Biblical calendar that lasts for 29 days and corresponds to August-September of the Gregorian calendar. The name of the month originates from Aramaic “ve-elilu” – which means “to probe, contemplate, or analyze”. This biblical month precedes the fall biblical feasts. The first of these feasts is Rosh ha Shana (Jewish New Year, that is known in the Scripture as Yom Teruah – or remembrance of the trumpet sound), when according to the tradition, God judges all He’s created.

Elul is a charitable time, the time of special opportunities to show love to people. On these days it’s important to meet the financial needs our loved ones’ (and that of others). According to Hebrew tradition: when we are concerned with our material status – we’re being material, but when we focus our attention on the needs of other people – it’s the manifestation of our spirituality.

Only in God, we are real

That’s what a wise rabbi once said. At the moment I heard these words I didn't fully understand them. But now I know what they mean because I’m going through it in my own life. Only with God, I’ve begun to recognize myself as a real me. Not like my parents, teachers or friends wanted me to be. But me personally, the way I was conceived and created by my Creator. Not to be as a spitting image of anybody, but exactly myself.

The word of rabbi on Shavuot

If we want to know the sound of the trumpet, we will certainly get to know it.  And if we want to open up to it even more, it will open up itself for us in a greater fullness, and the light of the Lord’s face will become our light

. And then we will not only rejoice on great occasions like Dedication days or synagogues holidays, and then we will not only rejoice on Shabbat, but each day will become God’ day, because each day will be separated from gloom, darkness, dirt and fear.

Continue to follow God – go to God - this is the main direction God always leads us, no matter what happens. He leads us to Himself. And no matter how experienced we may be in our spiritual life, no matter how much we have studied His Word, no matter how many God’s signs we have experienced - there is always bigger and better. Using all that we have received from Him, He wants to lead us, guide us, and sometimes when we are not able to do it by ourselves, carry us to Himself (Shemot, Exodus 19:4).

God reveals Himself to people in different ways, but He doesn’t want His children to stop finding some preliminary manifestation of His love, mercy, care and protection. But that through these blessings they ascended further, because God wants to reveal Himself more fully, more deeply, more powerfully to those who seemingly have already found Him; and He wants us to seek Him and continue to follow Him – go to Him .

It is important for us to make a decision to give and entrust everything to the Lord and begin to rejoice and thank Him in advance for the fact that each of our loss will result in a huge new blessing; each of our sacrifice will be like a seed that grow and bear wonderful multiplying fruit; for the fact that God does not leave us for a second, even if it seemed to us that He did; for the fact that God’s love is greater than all our theoretical concepts of His love. We shall thank Him, rejoice and celebrate Shavout!

May light cloud of God's glory viewlessly cover us on God's chest, no matter where we are and no matter what happens around us.

Shavuot Sameach, chaverim!
