24 Av 5782 (August 21, 2022)

The new month of Elul (Virgo) begins on Sunday, August 28, 2022. As the month of Elul begins, so too does our preparation for Rosh HaShanah and the Days of Awe. Things in nature begin to turn inward and the month's energy is that of "teshuvah" or "return". A return to innocence, a return to the soul's roots, a time for reflection. It is said that during Elul the Blessed Holy On wanders the fields. This means that the love and Light of the Creator is more accessible to us during this month than any other month of the year. Hopefully the last two months of Tammuz and Av have caused us to grow and realize certain things about ourselves. In Elul we have the chance to reflect on that growth as well as review the past year as we make our spiritual preparations for Rosh Hashanah and the new year ahead. This is an exciting new month ahead, may we be blessed to work on Teshuvah and get ourselves ready for 5783.

The New Month of Elul (Virgo)
The new month of Elul (Virgo) begins on Sunday, August 28, 2022. For more information on the month of Elul, visit our Rosh Chodesh page. The month of Av has 30 days, so Rosh Chodesh is the last day of Av and the first day of Elul. Our Rosh Chodesh services for the month of Elul will be on this Shabbat.

Used each day during the month, Selichot gives us the opportunity to unite ourselves with the Creator's Light and with the consciousness of selichah סליחה, which means forgiveness. During the Selichot service we confront our past negative actions and ask for forgiveness. This is a vital preparation for Rosh HaShanah, the Days of Awe, and Yom Kippur. The best time to for Selichot is between midnight and dawn, for it is during this time that Divine mercy is available. We invite you to join us for Selichot each night, Sundays-Fridays during Elul @ 12:30 AM EDT (In some time zones this will be Saturday-Thursday nights).

The word צדקה "tzedakah" in Hebrew often is translated as charity, but it actually comes from the root צדק "tzedek" which means righteousness. The addition of the letter ה "Hei" connects righteousness to Malchut. Many people say "giving" tzedakah, but the more appropriate phrase is "doing" tzedakah. Tzedakah is in many ways an exchange of energy and is a visible expression of gratitude in this world for that which we have received, especially when we receive it from an organization that helps us to grow spiritually. We thank you in advance for your generosity and support. Click Here to make a donation.

At the end of the Amidah, we whisper a verse from the Tanach which is associated with our Hebrew name. Would you like to know your Hebrew name and the verse that corresponds to your name?
