What is ELUL and how is it celebrated?
Evening of Friday August 18, 2023 – Evening of Tuesday September 26, 2023
Elul is the last month of the Jewish year when we spiritually prepare for the High Holy Days of reflection and repentance. It is also in the “40 Days of the Shofar,” the appointed time when God beckons His people to “return to Him.” Elul is also the season of the shofar. Spiritually, for 40 days, God is blowing the trumpet in Zion. He is sounding the alarm to wake us up from any spiritual slumber to stir us up to return to the Lord and to make His priorities our priorities.
