What would Jewish prayers be without the Psalms? The lyrics of King David and other psalmists can open our hearts and help us to reflect on what we most value. Language, rhythm and poetry come together to form powerful texts that can transport us. This series unpacks the history, meaning and usage of four psalms from the book of Tehillim in our religious services: (1) Psalm 23 (Learning to Trust), (2) Psalm 27 (Hoping to Repent), (3) Psalm 49 (Finding Meaning in Mourning), and (4) Psalm 137 (Fatal Attraction).
