The book of Psalms (tehillim) is among the most widely used books in the Bible. Psalms are incorporated into Jewish liturgy, and have been a source of inspiration to poets and authors both ancient and modern. Attributed to King David, the Psalms are a collection of poetic prayers expressing gratefulness, jubilation, sorrow, great need and the variety of human emotions in-between.
Join us as we explore this amazing literary creation, and experience the Psalms as never before.
