The Loving King: 1 Elul, 5747 • August 26, 1987

Elul is a time for building a deeper, more loving relationship with G-d. The Alter Rebbe teaches that, at this time, G-d is like a great king who leaves his palace and his city, and goes out to the fields to be near the common-folk of his kingdom. All the townspeople joyously gather to welcome him, and he looks upon each one with a smile and a gracious countenance. He lovingly listens to their needs, and the people then escort their beloved king back to his capital city.

Disc 13, Program 52

Event Date: 1 Elul 5747 - August 26, 1987

Elul is a time for building a deeper, more loving relationship with G-d. The Alter Rebbe teaches that, at this time, G-d is like a great king who leaves his palace and his city, and goes out to the fields to be near the common-folk of his kingdom. All the townspeople joyously gather to welcome him, and he looks upon each one with a smile and a gracious countenance. He lovingly listens to their needs, and the people then escort their beloved king back to his capital city.

During Elul, G-d reaches out to every single Jew, even to the youngest child. Knowing that we can receive a smile from Him, and we can make a request of Him, face to face, fills even a child with the greatest happiness. In turn, by resolving to fulfill His will throughout the new year, we are stirred to bring G-d greater happiness.
