Tehilim 120: Salvation from Deceptive Warmongering Enemies - Shir ha'Maalos #1 (Part 1)
Show Notes

This evening (5/10/21) in our Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we began the first of the 15 Shir ha'Maalos! We immediately noted the differences in style and substance compared to the other perakim we've learned, but that didn't stop us from diving in. We made it through the translation, the Targum, and half the Meiri before we had to stop for the night. Next time we'll finish the Meiri and then try to understand the main idea and purpose of the perek (בג"ה).
