“Saying Tehillim” (Psalms) is an age-old Jewish practice. The image of the well-worn volume soaked with a mother’s tears accompanies many children as they grow up. Individuals, congregations and entire communities say Tehillim to evoke merit for the sick, those in danger, the childless, and many others. Psalms are also part of our daily prayers, giving voice to our desire to connect with G-d.
For many of use, though, the Tehllim remain an enigma. How exactly do we apply King david’s prayers to our own situation? How do we arouse our hearts with words that we may not understand fully? In short , how do we find ourselves in the Psalms?
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov shows us how. His teachings probe and extract deeper meaning of Psalms and their import for our daily lives. With incisive commentary and original insights, the Rebbe transforms our saying of Tehillim from rote recital to genuine prayer.
The next time you “say Tehillim”, say it with The Power of Pslams. With Rebbe Nachman at your side, you can indeed find yourself and your inspiration in the Psalms.
