Lesson 1 Thank you Rabbi Gurkow for that insightful understanding on just a few words of the Ashrei - Psalm 145. I especially enjoyed your sharing the Chasidic masters' explanation of days also referring to attributes of G-d and your analogy of students' behavior without the teacher's presence to G-d and us. Since learning to translate the Ashrei word by word thanks to Artscroll interlinear siddur and reading all the commentaries on the Ashrei, I appreciate your contribution to this thrice daily said Psalm. Thank you. Reply

Six Days, Six Ways Wow so what i can translate from my perspective is. The book of Psalms is the manual for unity almost mankind and Jew alike. G-d involved Himself by listening to David prayers. Because He wanted to show all of mankind that unity is possible under G-d, Blessed Be His Name. G-d wanted David to know that I am not a thought but I am the reality of kindness and punishment. Making the difference between the King of all of creation and a human king to keep Jews from straying away. This was about pouring your heart out to G-d not just obeying King David. Like night and day, Great lecture. Reply
