What the Rabbeim say about Chai Elul:

The Rebbe Maharash said “while singing the song of the Alter Rebbe… it is an auspicious time on high, and chassidim know what a time of eis ratzon means.”

אדמו”ר המהר”ש אמר “בשעה ששרים את ניגונו של רבנו הזקן.. עת רצון אז למעלה, וחסידים יודעים מה פירוש עת רצון”

“I found him (the Rashab) in a very uplifted mood, he said to me with great joy: ‘Gut Yomtov to us, today is the birthday of our two great luminaries, the birthday of the Baal Shem Tov, and the birthday of the Alter Rebbe.”

מצאתי אותו (הרש”ב) במצב-רוח מרומם מאוד, אמר לי בשמחה רבה: ‘חג שמח לנו, היום הוא יום-ההולדת של שני המאורות הגדולים שלנו, יום-ההולדת של הבעש”ט, ויום-ההולדת של רבנו הזקן’.

“Chai in Elul is a day dedicated to joy and blessing, to Chassidim in general and Chabad Chassidim in particular.” – The Frierdiker Rebbe

“ח”י באלול הוא היום המיועד לשמחה ולברכה, לחסידים בכלל ולחסידי חב”ד בפרט”. – אדמו”ר הריי”צ
