Summary of Elul
Elul is the sixth of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar. Elul is called “the month of repentance,” “the month of mercy,” and “the month of forgiveness.” Elul follows the two previous months of Tammuz and Av, the months of the two great sins of Israel, the sin of the golden calf and the sin of the spies.
This is the month that “the King is in the field” (2 Sam. 10:1). All can approach Him, and He shines His countenance upon everyone.
