Encounter The King Joel 2:1, and Song of Songs 6:3 Elul is the time we hear the call of the Shofar and go meet and have an Encounter with the King.
We captures the essence of love in a bottle that defines the feeling and beauty of the month of Elul (7th Month on Jewish Calender) leading into the holiday of Rosh Hashanna (Yom Teruah). This is the month when we are told a parable that the King is in the Field to meet and bond with his people. The King is referred to as G-d of the Universe comes to meet his people during the month of Elul to hear their petitions and confessions of their heart to him so that they may better have a wonderful relationship in the year to come.
Long Prophesied (Myrrh) and because we belong (Myrrh) to Elohim, we humble and make Teshuvah (Cassia) and humble ourselves and come before our King to have a face to face encounter (Onycha) with Him, to intercede/set-apart (Onycha) and do spiritual cleansing/purify by worship and praise (Sandalwood Mysore) Our Creator Elohim and seeking His wisdom and glorious light (Israeli Tangerine/Kumquat/Joppa Orange).We CROWN/Chose (Pomegranate and Ylang Ylang Flower)our King at Rosh Hashanna (Yom Terua) and He set His throne in our Midst/To Rule (Honey abs).
The Jewish Sages of Torah tells us that Elul is the month of movement. This month we receive the decree that the King is in the field and wants to meet with us and discuss relation and sign the ketubah Torah which contains the codes of law for living a Jewish Life and be the spouse that the King of the Universe will prize above all peoples. The Hebrew term for walking is HaLiKHAh (הליכה) which is closely related to the word HaLaKHAh (הלכה), the codes of law. What does walking have to do with laws? Of course, we can all walk with or without the Torah with or without G-d in our life, but the idea here is not learning how to walk physically throughout the world but how to walk spiritually throughout the world: How to communicate and treat other humans, how to build a relationship with G-d of the Universe.
Our tradition knows this and the month of Elul is the time for this preparation. “Elul” has been interpreted as an acronym, with its Hebrew letters “aleph,” “lamed,” “vav,” “lamed” representing the quote from Song of Songs (6:3), “ani l’dodi v’dodi li” The words mean “I am my Beloved’s and my Beloved is mine,” where my “Beloved” is God, and “I” am the Jewish People. We see this imagery every week as we sing L’cha Dodi and welcome the Sabbath Bride.
This blend can be used all year around, especially during the High Holiday season. As we move through the month of Elul and prepare for Rosh Hashanah (new year since creation) it is as if we are approaching the anniversary of our marriage to G-d in Gan Aden (Garden of Eden). We get a chance to seek forgiveness, to remember what that ceremony was like when our world and humankind were created, and to start anew, fresh, and purity once again. This is the times to remember we are married to our G-d of the Universe in his beautiful Garden at creation.
ELUL is an acronym for Ani Ledodi Vedodi Li, I am for My beloved and My beloved is for me (Song of Songs 6:3). At other times, G-d, the divine Beloved, reaches out to us (see, for example, Song of Songs 2:16). During Elul, however, we must initiate the relationship of renewal. It all starts with the ani, the word I. We must see ourselves for who we are, for who we have and haven’t yet been, and for who we might become. Knowing we are because G-d is Almighty, all seeing and has compassion.
ELUL is an acronym for Ish Lereyehu Umatanot La’evyonim, Each one to his neighbor, and gifts to the poor (Esther 9:22). This verse describes the celebration at the time of Queen Esther, when the Jews were spared. Foodstuffs were sent to neighbors and friends, and gifts, to the poor. Those exchanges remain Purim practices to this day. Nehemiah 8:10 speaks of Jews sending gifts of food (the same phrase “shilchu manot” is used) to one another at the time of the New Year, as well. Some Hasidic groups maintain the custom of sending gifts of food during Elul.
ELUL is an acronym for Inah Leyado Vesamti Lach. Deliver into his hand, I shall establish for you (Exodus 21:13). Elul “a refuge in time.” Elul provides a haven for all his people even those that have sinned. The Ketubah between G-d and His People is at a time of renewal and forgiveness.
ELUL is an acronym for Et Levavecha Ve’et Levav. Your heart and the heart of your [children] (Deuteronomy 30:6). Moses describes how G-d will bring the people back into the Promised Land, following their exile, and he adds that God will circumcise their hearts and the hearts of their children. This implies vulnerability, of course, but also a return to softness and kindness.
ELUL can also be read read backwards in the first letters of the phrase Ladonai Vayomro Leymor Ashirah. To G-d, and they said, saying, “I will sing” (Exodus 15:1). This phrase is part of a verse which introduces the Song of the Sea. Moses and the people of Israel sing praises to G-d following the parting of the Sea of Reeds and their escape from Pharaoh’s army. Just when their situation seemed absolutely hopeless, they were saved.
