Why Psalm 27? Why now? It is traditional to recite the 14 verses of Psalm 27 for 50 days from the beginning of Elue through Simchat Torah. Together we'll explore Rabbi Debra Robbins' new book, "Opening Your Heart with Psalm 27: A Spiritual Practice for the Jewish New Year." Our journey includes three opportunitiees to experience the book with Rabbi Robbins, as well as ways to deepen our practice together through music, meditation, text study and ritual. Consider the book your key to unlock the season of return. We'll see you in Elul!
