Review from Jewish Values Online

Lord, Get Me High! by Rabbi Elchanan Shoff

Reviewed by Rivkah Lambert Adler, Jewish Values Online, September 3, 2015

Shoff’s small book is divided into 14 chapters, which correspond to the 14 verses of Psalm 27. The book, with extensive scholarly footnotes and use of Hebrew phrases, is intended for a Jewishly literate reader. However, there is much richness here for anyone who takes the time to delve in.

As an example, in Chapter 3, Shoff offers his readers an insight about how to understand the troubles that come into our lives. He says, “One great key that King David is showing us is that we should learn to see that Hashem is the One Who send us our challenges – instead of seeing them as coming directly from our enemies… This verse tells us that even in the actions of the enemy, we are to see Hashem’s presence.”

If you are already saying Psalm 27 daily during this time period, you’ll no doubt learn insights and new thoughts that will add meaning to your daily recitation. Even if you’re not likely to say this, or any, chapter of Tehillim every day, there are messages in this slim volume that will deepen your connection to God.

And that makes it worth the short read.
