Live Oneg & Beginning of Elul

Friday, August 21, 2020 1 Elul 5780

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Join your fellow congregants and the Clergy for a Live Oneg after Shabbat Services tonight. This will be a special Oneg service, as we are celebrating the Begininng of Elul. 

What is Elul and why is it so special?

Elul is the Hebrew month that precedes the High Holidays (Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur). Some say that the Hebrew letters that comprise the word Elul – alephlamedvavlamed – are an acronym for “Ani l’dodi v’dodi li,” a verse from Song of Songs that means “I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine.” Most often interpreted as love poetry between two people, the phrase also reflects the love between God and the Jewish people, especially at this season, as we assess our actions and behaviors during the past year and hope for blessings in the coming year.
