Show Notes

This evening (9/21/22), in our Wednesday night Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we concluded our analysis of Tehilim 27 - at least, for this first time learning it! After a LENGTHY review and refinement of the points we covered last time, we finished analyzing the remaining pesukim, then attempted to summarize the purpose of the perek as dictated by the central idea. We even had time for a brief side-point at the end about the Maimonidean view of Gehinom, as explained by the Radak. All in all, this was a great perek. It feels so good to actually understand what I'm saying whenever I say this during this time of year!
