Elul is the month of mercy and forgiveness, and prepares the nation for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. This illumination depicts a dialogue between Rabbi Meir and his wife Beruriah. Rabbi Meir sees the sinners and wishes to punish them, while his wife teaches that man's responsibility in life is to uproot sins, not the sinners; to heal humanity, not see that the sinner will be punished. Rabbi Meir is convinced. He begs for mercy for the sinners, and they return to their righteousness.
