The Tehillim or Psalm's
These beautiful ancient prayers, that have been recited by our people for thousands of years, were written by the greatest poets of Jewish History, including Adam, Moses, and the majority by King David. Our thoughts take flight as the words of these immortal poems open our hearts, bring renewal and strength to life's tragedies, and joyous gratitude to life's triumphs. Throughout our history, the recitation of the Tehillim not only inspire us by accentuating the role God plays in our lives, but it creates a conduit of communication with God as we plead for his merciful intervention.
The BRS Women's Tehillim Circle
Founded in 1998 by Yocheved Hande, it is a circle of healing created to enable our membership to help those in need by collectively engaging in this special form of prayer. Thanks to the efforts of many special women in our community, the entire book of Tehillim is recited every day. They are recited for anyone in our community or extended community who has been stricken with a life-threatening or debilitating illness or injury. By reciting these immortal words, we touch the lives of others and touch our lives our well.
