The Prayer That Jews Turn to in Times of Challenge:
The Power and Majesty of Yosheiv BeSeiser
The Midrash tells us that Tehillim 91, Yosheiv BeSeiser, was composed by Moshe Rabbeinu as a prayer of protection. It is a lyrical and moving declaration of Hashem’s care and compassion for us and of our deep trust in Him. It has traditionally been recited by Jews during times of danger and distress.
This beloved chapter of Tehillim is about emunah and bitachon. It’s about Hashem’s protection in times of trouble. It’s about knowing — not just believing, but really knowing — that our fate is entirely in Hashem’s compassionate and loving Hands.
It’s about our lives.
Bestselling author Rabbi Yechiel Spero gives us a new understanding of Yosheiv BeSeiser through his fascinating commentary and dozens of inspiring and unusual stories. This beautiful work opens our eyes and we see Hashem’s protective Arms around us, a Father shielding His children — and we are no longer afraid.
