Am I the only one for whom Rabbi Moskowitz's class seem to be "over my head"?I guess... no, I know that I don't have the necessary minimum of background knowledge AGAIN.
Harold Levine
38:44
Oh no! At least part of it went over everyone’s head!
Larry Finkelstein

Some pronunciations are different. Like Toirah/Torah.

When we are at the Israel museum, the staff told us that the actual scroll fragments that were real and not a copy were displayed flatter so the ink did not run off the parchment
Peter Klein
41:44
R. Moskowitz speaks just like my Hebrew school moreh.
lisebrown
42:11
I wonder about the rhythmic sense in the original (I know we don’t know) vs how we set the Hebrew to music today.
Darina Ivanova
42:16
LOL I never went to anything like Hebrew school, of course.
Ellen Poster
42:24
can someone help me get connected video and audio? thanks
Jacob Niemi
42:55
For those who are so inclined, there are also some wonderful contemporary interpretations by American Jewish musicians. In addition to the link I posted on the FB page with the setting by Dan Nichols, Debbie Friedman also wrote an English interpretation, "God, My Shield", and there are also several others.
Sarah Siegel
43:51
Learning in memory of my other favorite teachers Rabbi Kosowsky, Mrs. Honan, both of blessed memory, and Mr. McWilliams.
Yael

The word etnachta is related to menucha = rest.
Sara's iPad
45:13
where in the liturgy is this psalm used?
Harold Levine
46:16
They’re not all used in liturgy. I’m putting together a chart to address this question.
Darina Ivanova
47:00
It's usually subject - verb - object in Bulgarian too, but our word order is more flexible than in English.
Jacob Niemi
47:14
The last verse of this psalm appears in Havdalah liturgy.
Harold Levine
47:29
Thanks, Jacob!
lisebrown
47:36
Interesting that “many” is in plural. Many of the many.

QUESTION: Is verse 8 in Hebrew clearly a pleading? As opposed to a demand?
Yael
51:32
cheeck
eleanor

teeth.
lisebrown
52:21
So that they can’t eat.
Sharon Sonnenschein
52:32
Is Elohim used when we want to attribute a God of justice and Hashem used when we refer to a God of mercy
eleanor
52:33
or they can't speak
Jacob Niemi
53:20
Like the chatimah in a prayer
Yael
53:49
Jesus in Hebrew is Yeshu - is this related to Yeshoa?
Yael
53:57
Yeshua?
benjaminshafran
53:59
Teeth of the wicked… same as in the Haggadah, ..hit the Wicked Son in the teeth
Julia Ostrov
54:11
Kristen writing here: What in the Hebrew indicates to the interpreter when to use exclamation points?
Harold Levine
54:23
Sharon, it’s a fascinating question. It seems like there are various different layers of text; different groups had different names for God.
lisebrown
54:24
Yeshu is Greek (?)
Darina Ivanova
55:47
No, no Shin sound in Greek.
lisebrown
56:16
Alter does not have any exclamation marks. Only periods and commas.
Hilary Nudell
56:18
The psalmist moves from the personal to the community in the coda. Is this a formality or does it have some other significance?
Regina Linder
56:29
"Lo era" returns so critical to 23 Psalm.
Saul’s iPad
56:48
What about the vertical line in the text verse 7?
Yael
56:51
Plea
Jacob Niemi
56:54
You could argue that the psik after the second word lends itself toward an interjectory function
lisebrown
57:45
psik?
Sarah Siegel
57:55
Machshav.
Yael
58:05
The academy for Hebrew language makes up words
Jacob Niemi
58:08
The vertical line after the word, indicating a pause
Megan Cossey
58:11
I feel like this could be read as a pleading but also as a demand, perhaps an angry demand, this is your job G-d, you are meant to do this for me.
Sarah Siegel

Sparks?

Sh’ma koleinu similar - pleading demand
Megan Cossey
59:35
Lise, ooh thanks for pointing that out
Jacob Niemi
59:42
Megan, I think you're hitting the nail right on the head. Judaism has an indredibly long tradition of what we might call "protest prayer"
Sarah Siegel
59:51
Easier than Chaucer!
Yael
59:52
The Academy for Hebrew language did not come up with a Hebrew word for "Academy"...
Megan Cossey
59:57
Thanks Jacob, that makes sense
Leslie Bernstein
01:00:00
Gotta love that root of electricity!
Darina Ivanova
01:00:20
i thought of Psalm 23 too
Yael
01:01:13
What about Jesus/Yeshu - Yeshua?
Sarah Siegel
01:01:31
Mizmor shir l’yom hashabbat…
lisebrown
01:01:56
They must have been set to music. They are so amenable to it. Rhyme and rhythm.
Harold Levine
01:01:57
Yael - hang on. I can get back to you regarding Jesus’s name in Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek.
Sarah Siegel
01:01:59
Tehilim
Jacob Niemi
01:02:24
Is there a linguistic distinction between mizmor and zemer?
Allison Drew Klein

01:04:37
Since Rabbi talked about Wisdom Psalms, do David Psalms place another area of emphasis?
Judy Porges Hollander
01:04:50
I am preoccupied by Absalom; he got a bum deal
Harold Levine
01:05:33
Noreen, if you go to Wikipedia, you can see the divisions that scholars have developed to categorize the Psalms - David, History, Praise, Kingship, etc.
Megan Cossey
01:05:34
Psalm 103 is a touchstone for me when I am struggling.
Judy Porges Hollander
01:06:08
Rav Zalman Schachter-Shalomi translates late as my foes. I like that better because Absalom in the Bible is not really a bad guy. He got treated very poorly by his father. But as a metaphor of son trying to kill father, I get it.
Sarah Siegel
01:06:41
Faulkner’s *Absalom, Absalom* — when we read it in high school, I don’t recall our teacher referring to Psalms.
Judy Porges Hollander
01:07:41
in some a letter of the root is droppe
Judy Porges Hollander
01:07:45
dropped
Judy Porges Hollander
01:08:52
a group of verbs that are like that.
Yael
01:09:00
T'kuma = resurrection
Yael
01:09:21
Or revival
Leslie Bernstein
01:09:55
Kum — also in l’cha dodo?
Yael
01:10:02

Harold Levine
01:10:32

And also in the Torah service.
Randi Sarokoff
01:10:47
Verse 5, reminds me of Hagar at her time of need to save her son looks up toward G-d and here the speaker cries out toward the mountains. Hashem responds when one looks or cries out towards above
Harold Levine
01:10:53
Kuma Adonai v’Yafutzu Oyvecha

Donna Gray

Ask and it shall be given, seek and ye shall find.

Amen to that.
