The month of Elul is a great gift of love from Hashem. The four Hebrew letters of the month of Elul are used to provide us with an understanding of what this great month of opportunity is all about. Perhaps the most well-known one is “Ani l’dodi v’dodi li (I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine).” The first letter of each of the four words together spell the letters in the Hebrew form of the word Elul.
