A Cry from the Depths!: Studying Tehillim: Chapter 130 (Shir Hamaalot Mimaamakim)

This class studies the popular psalm 130 of Shir L’Maalot Mimaamakim. The opening verses reveal powerful messages about prayers emanating from the depths of despair. The Psalmist raises our spirits with optimistic hope—showing us how to rise from sorrow on the wings of heartfelt supplication. On a more profound level, it addresses our deepest rhythms of organic spirituality, setting our inner child free in faith, feeling and sincerity. This all becomes most meaningful and relevant during the Days of Awe initiating the New Year.

What does the Fox say... Thank you! This was very enjoyable. Thank you for giving your time to share your wisdom. Very nice indeed. Again thank you. Now I understand the "Smiling" Akiva's seeing of the fox coming out of the Holy of Holies after the Temple's destruction. Don't cry! Smile, find the joy in the journey home... that's what the fox says. Reply
