Ready for Rosh Hashanah?

Click on the title below for an audio recording of a shiur delivered today at the offices of Gerber & Co. in Century City.

"I Am For My Beloved and My Beloved Is For Me"

One thing I forgot to mention (for after you listen to the shiur):

ומל ה' את לבבכם ואל לבב זרעכם

The word Elul appears in this passuk! It turns out that ומל ה' את לבבכם carries the very same message of מדה כנגד מדה as the passuk of אני לדודי ודודי לי.

Another amazing point that dovetails perfectly with the shiur: As a man of 99 years of age, Avraham was frightened to perform circumcision on himself. Hashem thus came and placed His Hand on Avraham's hand and they did it together (Medrash Rabba 49:2). And this took place on Yom Kippur! (Pirkei D'Rebbe Eliezer 29).
