Elul – Teshuvah – The Power of Possibility – Speaker: Rabbi Nasan Maimon. Text: Likutey Halakhos Orakh Chaim 1, Hilkhos Tefillin 5, Paragraph 26.
One of the Names of Hashem is “Ehyeh“- “I will be.” This relates to the power of potential and free will, and gives us the ability for Teshuvah – return to Hashem.
Until we decide to return to Hashem, we’re not fully alive.
Shabbos is the day of Teshuvah for the entire week.
