The 6th Hebrew month of ELUL has extra significance this year!
The Hebrew word for month – chodesh – shares the same root as the word chadash, meaning new.
No two Eluls are ever the same, and this one may prove to be extraordinary.
May it be Your will, O Lord, our G-d and the G-d of our forefathers, that You inaugurate this month of Av upon us for goodness and for blessing.
Abba, Father, may You give us long life, a life of peace – Shalom
a life of goodness – Tovah
a life of blessing – Bracha
a life of sustenance – Parnassa
a life of physical health – Hilutz Atzamot
a life in which there is a fear of heaven and fear of sin – Yirat Shamayim ve’ Yirat Chet
a life in which there is no humiliation – Ein Busha u’Chlimah
a life of wealth and honor – Osher ve’Kavod
a life in which we will have love of Torah and awe and reverence of G-d – Ahavat Torah ve’Yirat HaShem
a life walked more fully for Your glory in Adoneinu Yeshua, our Messiah and Lord.
