The root word ‘shir’ שיר, song is found hundreds of times in the Bible, and Biblical personalities had strong ties to song: Saul with his music, David with his harp, and the Levites singing in the Temple. It is also no coincidence that the gematria (Hebrew alphabet and number correspondance) of ‘song’, shir, is equal to that of prayer, תפילה, tefillah. Music is a force of elevation for the intense feelings connected to prayer. At times the melody attached to the words produce as strong feelings as the words themselves. A new music CD “T’filateinu,” (“Our Prayer”) includes 11 songs that will inspire you each day and transport you to the Land of Israel!

My wife and I pray for the peace of Israel and Jerusalem and also for the world. I am asking for the prayers of the Jewish people for the flooding that is going on in Louisiana and for us, we are the only family that is left on the road of our community. I pray, as does my wife, that God will see us through this flooding of our home. I hope you understand. We are not rich or wealthy people. Please remember us in your prayers. – Robert Peterson
