Elul: A Month of Preparation and Repentance, Part 1

Elul: A Month of Preparation and Repentance, Part 1

September 21, 2019 | Ralph Finley

Passage: Leviticus 23:23-25

Pastor Ralph Finley gives a message on the significance of the month of Elul in the biblical calendar, giving a brief overview of the Gregorian/Solar calendar and the Hebrew (Lunar/Solar) calendar. Are the traditions surrounding the month of Elul merely manmade traditions that we should disregard, or is there wisdom in treating the month of Elul as a month of preparation for the high holy days that follow?
