Tehilim 27: Hashem Ori v'Yishi (Part 1)
Show Notes

This evening (9/7/22), in our inaugural Tehilim/Tefilah shiur of the season, we began our analysis of Tehilim 27, which is customarily recited between Rosh Chodesh Elul and Shemini Atzeres. We spent the first half of the shiur translating the perek, noting many of the nuances and ambiguities, and spent the second half raising questions, making observations, and suggesting approaches. The participants in the shiur voted to wait until next week to make our "big move" which will unlock the perek, which means that we have a week to think about it before we continue (and, hopefully, complete) our analysis.
