“The Psalms are the songs of Israel;
always sing them with pride."
- A grandfather’s words to his granddaughter at her Bat Mitzvah 


Course Description :

Comprising 150 chapters, these songs of praise to God, cries of despair at personal misfortune, celebrations of triumph over adversaries, both spiritual and physical, solace in the face of loss, and so many other life moments, have provided words of strength, courage, comfort for countless generations readers, both Jews and Christians alike.
