Teacher Title Abstract Course
Rav Elchanan Samet Shiur #21: Psalm 22 - "My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me" Complaint, Supplication, and Thanksgiving (Continuation) In this shiur, we will study the final third of Psalm 22. Many scholars have argued that this section of the psalm is not a contextual or stylistic continuation of the sections that precede it, and therefore should be considered an independent psalm. We will argue that the opposite is true - that this section constitutes an apt conclusion to the psalm as a whole and completes the psychological development in the psalm. Tehillim - Advanced (2)

We will discuss the reasons offered for this practice, as well as the midrashic reading of the psalm, which connects it to the persona and story of Esther. Tehillim - Advanced (2)
