Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #03: Tehillim 100 – "A Psalm of Thanksgiving" - Appendix II The Psalm’s Heading and It’s Place in the Liturgy In our study of Psalm 100, we suggested that the content of the psalm should be interpreted independent of its heading, which was a later addition indicating when the psalm was customarily recited in the time of the Temple. In this appendix to that study, we will discuss the development of the prevalent custom to include this psalm in the liturgy on weekdays, but not on Shabbat, which is related to this heading, and we will suggest that the different customs in this regard are connected to the question of how to relate to the heading. Tehillim - Advanced (2)
Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #04: Psalms 95-100 – Six Psalms of Praise In this shiur, we will discuss six psalms (95-100), noting how they form a unit of psalms of praise.

We will analyze the structure of the psalm, noting its unique features and development, and focusing on the question of the content of the praise that the addressee is called upon to relate. Tehillim - Advanced (2)
Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #07: Psalm 113 - “Give Praise, O Servants of the Lord, Praise the Name of the Lord” The First Psalm of Hallel (Part II) In this shiur, we will continue our study of Psalm 113, focusing on the structure and significance of its two halves.

Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #08: Psalm 117 - “O Praise The Lord, All You Nations” The Shortest Psalm in the Book of Tehillim Psalm 117 is the shortest psalm in Tehillim. In this shiur, we will begin our study of this psalm by examining its structure, which indicates that the two verses in this psalm were indeed intended to constitute an independent psalm. Tehillim - Advanced (2)
Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #09: Psalm 117 - “O Praise The Lord, All You Nations” The Shortest Psalm in the Book of Tehillim (Part II) In this shiur, we will continue our discussion of Psalm 117, addressing a central question: Since the appeal to praise God is addressed to "all the nations," why is the reason for the praise that God has shown great kindness "to us"?

Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #10: Psalm 142 - "You Are My Refuge and My Portion in the Land of the Living" The Soul's Escape from the Prison of Loneliness At first glance, Psalm 142 appears to be similar substantively and stylistically to other psalms of supplication. What is the unique message of this psalm? By studying the psalm's structure, we reach the conclusion that this psalm describes the desperate loneliness of the unjustly persecuted.

Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #12: Psalm 11 - “How Can You Say To My Soul, Flee Like A Bird…” A Theological and Practical Polemic in the Book of Tehillim Psalm 12 opens with a declaration of the psalmists faith in God and his opposition to the suggestion that he "flee to the mountain" like a bird. In this shiur, we will analyze this difficult verse and attempt to explain who made this suggestion, what it means, and why the psalmist is opposed to it. Tehillim - Advanced (2)
