Elul: A Love Story with Cantor David Goldstein

Join Cantor David Goldstein to learn about the love story that is the month of Elul. The name of the month “Elul,” can be seen as an acronym א. ל. ו. ל representing the phrase, “I am to my beloved as my beloved is to me,” from Song of Songs 6:3. What can we glean from this text as we approach the Holy Days? How can we expand our love for ourselves, our communities, and the Divine?
