Concluding Thoughts for Month Of Elul

Hello Grafted In Readers,
For those of us who pay attention to the Jewish calendar, i.e., the appointed times or feasts as outlined in the Hebrew Scriptures, Leviticus chapter 23, within the next 36 hours the world will be in the new year, 5775. The month of Elul is drawing to a close, which in large part soberly reminds us that God is our groom and we His bride. During this time or age, He is calling to each of us to be in relationship with Him. Hence the phrase, I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine.

Yet to come over the next few days are The Feast of Trumpets, Days of Awe, Day of Atonement and the 7 or 8-day Feast of Tabernacles. This is I believe a far richer observation of God and His ways compared to the Catholic tradition of Lent.

So in conclusion to this blog,
To everyone I would like to say Shana Tova (Happy new year) and Chag Sameach (Happy Feast).

Kevod Yeheveh, His presence be with and ever merciful toward us!
