For more than two thousand years, Jews have turned to the book of Tehillim (Psalms) to express their deepest passions, yearnings, and disappointments. The… psalms are exquisite works of poetry, powerful evocations of piety and spirituality, testaments to literary genius, and statements of profound– and often unsettling– theology. In this series, we’ll do close literary and theological readings of select psalms. We’ll together discover new texts and see familiar texts with new eyes.
