Show Notes

This evening (11/16/22), in our Wednesday night Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we continued our analysis of Adonai Sfasai Tiftach and Yihyu l'Ratzon. After reviewing the idea based on the Rambam we covered last night, we developed three more approaches: one based on a pasuk in Mishlei cited by the Abudirham, one based on the commentary of the Rokeach, and one based on our analysis of our two pesukim in context. We concluded by summarizing all the ideas we came up with in practical kavanah terms, and formulating a major question which we will endeavor to answer next time.
