Shoftim 5774
Vol. 10 No. 51, 28 Av - 4 Elul, 5774 / August 24 - 30, 2014
A note from the staff of Kabbalah Online in Tzefat
Elul is the final and "last-chance" month of the Jewish year . It leads directly into Rosh HaShanah. Therefore it is associated with "soul-accounting" and repentance (see first 2 articles). It begins this Tuesday. Look here next week for more features on this important season.
