The Nesivos Shalom zt’l had the following dream: He saw the month of Elul passing, and then Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur up to Hoshanah Rabba, but he saw himself remaining the same, without any inspiration to improve.
Then he woke up from his dream, and it was still erev Rosh Chodesh Elul. Relieved, he saw that it wasn’t too late. He can still utilize the month of Elul, and turn these days into a success story for teshuvah.
Elul has arrived! Now is the time! Let’s not let it pass us by without making the most of it!
