Bnei Yisaschar - The Month of Elul And The Shem Hashem
Provided by Revach L'Neshama (www.revach.net)

Revach L'Neshama

The spelling of the Shem Hashem for Elul is Hey, Hey, Vuv, Yud which is the last letters of the words (Devorim 6:25) "U'Tzedoka (Hey) Ti'hiye (Hey) Lanu (Vuv) Ki (Yud)". The Bnei Yisaschar says the letters of these words excluding the letters used for the Shem Hashem add up the the word "B'Tshuva" (715) to show that Elul is a special time for Tshuvah. The first letters of each word (Vuv, Tuf, Lamed, Kuf) equal the gematria of "Tammuz Av" (456), to show that the harsh decrees of those months are sweetened in Elul. The middle letters of the words are "Hin Tzedek" to show that the first step for every one embarking on the road to Tshuvah is to be completely honest.
