Hallel

Goal: to understand the poetic structure of the Psalms of Hallel, and the predominant themes of this sequence of Psalms of praise. The class will discuss various interpretations of these themes, looking at the text through the lens of PaRDeS: P'shat, Remez, D'rash, and Sod. We will work with the ancient custom of zogn tehilim, working with diverse customs of psalmody, and re-new it as a spiritual path to open the gates into the deep joy of praise. Study sources include Talmud references, Rambam Torah Sefer Z'manim, Rashi and others.
