September 1 -14 Elul 5772 – 3 weeks and 4 days until you put up your sukkah when Yom Kippur ends

Elul is a time of preparation for the Days of Awe.  Many consider Elul a time when ‘the king is in the field’ and G-d is close.  Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi said, ‘Everyone who so desires is permitted to meet him, and he receives them all with a cheerful countenance and shows a smiling face to them all.’


Isidor Kaufmann (1853-1921) was born in the Kingdom of Hungary, present day Romania.  He documented Hasidic life in paintings during his travels of Eastern Europe.
