Tehilim 145: "Ashrei" (Part 13 - Landing the Plane)
Show Notes

This evening (3/15/21) in our Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, our goal was to "land the plane" - that is, to wrap up this iteration of our learning of Ashrei. We're doing this because several of our regulars will be out for the next couple of weeks and that seems like a good opportunity to start something new. Did we succeed? Kind of. We didn't end up resolving the outstanding difficulties we had in Ashrei itself, but we did come up with a nice overview of all six chapters of pesukei d'zimra (145-150), based on our recollection of the ideas gleaned from the many months we spent on those chapters. There is more work to be done, but I'm happy with what we've discovered on this particular voyage.
