Rabbi Avishai David presents a “pshat” based analysis of perek 24 of Tehillim.
In this shiur on Tehillim Perek 24, Rabbi Avishai David expounds on the theme of “malchiot.”
Throughout life we encounter difficult situations and rely on G-d to help save us. There are four specific circumstances in which one is obligated to thank Hashem for His salvation. In his discussion on Tehillim Perek 107, Rabbi David details these situations and describes one’s obligation of gratitude toward the Almighty.
Continuing from last week, Rabbi David delves into the historical background of Tehillim Perek 107.
In light of the previous classes on Perek 107, the obligation of “birkat hagomel” is analyzed from a halachic perspective.
Tehillim Perek 145 is familiar to all as the tefillah of Ashrei. In this class, Rabbi Avishai David analyzes and explores the significance of this essential prayer.
In analyzing the Tefillah of Ashrei, we gain an appreciation of G-d’s transcendence and at the same time His focus on each individual.
In this class, Rabbi Avishai David discusses Tehillim Perek 82. This perek, said every week as a shir shel yom, expresses the theme of justice and truth within our ideal world.
Continuing with the theme of Shir Shel Yom, Rabbi David analyzes Tehillim Perek 94 with its theme of the often confusing elements of good and bad in this world.
Focusing once again on Perek 94, Rabbi David focuses on the theme of the perek, exploring the time old question of “tzaddik v’ra lo.”
In this class, Rabbi David discusses Tehillim Perek 81. This perek, said as the Shir Shel Yom of Thursday, describes the joy and ecstasy of praising Hashem and at the same time serves as a warning to Am Yisrael to stay on the right track.
Wrapping up Perek 81, Rabbi David analyzes the use of the word “shema”, listen, in the perek, and the connection between its two parts.
