Hashem Is My Light

Mining Le-Dovid (Psalm 27) for Insight and Inspiration

$9.95

Rabbi Shoff’s energy and exuberance leap out from every page – The Jewish Press

Hashem Is My Light mines the words of King David for insight into the High Holiday season, as Rabbi Shoff takes us on an entertaining and deeply insightful journey through the meaning and themes of Psalm 27.

Rabbi Shoff traces the themes of each verse of Psalm 27 and highlights why this Psalm is recited during the Jewish penitential season of Elul, through Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkos. Each one of the Psalm’s fourteen verses is carefully analyzed to show the intricate message and detailed words that are uniquely suited for this most auspicious and sensitive time of the Jewish cycle. He draws freely and extensively from the storehouses of rabbinic wisdom throughout the ages, and crystallizes the message of Psalm, verse by verse, together with its meaning as a whole, to show the relevance, inspirational content, and beauty of this part of the Jewish calendar, and spark each and every Jew who reads this book closely to experience a more meaningful Elul and Tishrei season.

Originally published as Lord, Get Me High!

Elchanan Shoff is the Rabbi of Beis Knesses of Los Angeles, in California.
