Do You Know Your Inner Flower?

Elul Workshop

If you were able to dig into the innermost depths of your soul — what would you find? Did you know that every one of us at our core has a unique flower — actually a rose — with its own thirteen petals? And that this flower awakens during this month of Elul, alluded to in the verse “I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me, who grazes among the roses?” Indeed, this inner flower contains the secret to finding true and lasting love. As the verse begins with the eternal question so many of us ask: “Where has your {my} beloved gone, O fairest of women? Where has your beloved turned, that we may seek him with you?” And the answer is: “My beloved has gone down to his garden, to the spice beds, to graze in the gardens and to gather roses.” What message does this cryptic verse teach us about finding love in our lives today?

Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this intimate Elul workshop and learn how to uncover your inner rose, even if may be trapped among thorns. Discover how the secret to seeking out your beloved — “where has my beloved gone?” — is to look for the garden of roses where he/she is hiding. The month of Elul is an opportunity to enter the garden and find the love you deserve.
