being hidden in God

Written by rabbi russ resnik

art-rockcleftDuring the month of Elul and throughout the Days of Awe, our tradition recommends reading Psalm 27 twice each day. In this Psalm, David stirs us up to hope, courage, bold confidence in HaShem, and one other trait that is especially relevant for the High Holy Days, and for the middah of simplicity as well. “One thing,” says David, “have I asked of Hashem, and that will I seek: that I may dwell in the House of Hashem all the days of my life” (Ps. 27:4a).
