 What is Elul? The King in The Field

Elul Observances

  • The Shofar is sounded every weekday morning, except on the last day of Elul - Erev Rosh Hashana.

  • Psalm 27 is added to the daily morning and afternoon prayers until Hoshaana Rabba. (Psalm 27 is provided for you here on line. Click on the words Psalm 27 on your left.)

  • From the second day of Rosh Chodesh Elul until Yom Kippur we are to say three chapters of Tehillim every day.

    Then, on Yom Kippur, thirty six (chapters): Nine before Kol Nidrei, nine before sleeping, nine after Musaf, and nine after Ne'ila."

  • It is customary to give additional Tzedaka (charity) each weekday.

  • Beginning Saturday night before Rosh Hashana, and on the following weekday mornings into Erev Rosh Hashana, Selichot (special penitential prayers) are recited.

  • Elul is an appropriate time to reflect on our actions and attitudes of the previous year, and resolve to correct our shortcomings. See the Essays for more on this.
