Show Notes

This evening (4/26/21) in our Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we began learning Tehilim 28. I'm sure you're all familiar with Tehilim 28 ... just kidding. How many of us have even READ Tehilim 28? THAT's why I want to learn it. We've spent so much time this year on Tehilim that we regularly say, and I wanted to try a perek we never say. Sometimes, exposing one's mind to new material is all it takes to jumpstart a new approach or insight. Since we've focused primarily on perakim about shevach, I thought it would be good to focus on one about bakashah and hodaah. Tonight we translated the perek and raised a ton of questions. We'll aim to develop an approach and answer as many questions as we can next time.
