In a rapidly changing world, how can we maintain balance, sanity, hope, resilience?

For millennia, millions of people from all families of the earth have recited psalms as a regular practice, to cultivate these and other essential qualities for showing up as our best selves.

The wisdom and depth of the psalms is timeless, but every generation must find new ways to access their nourishing waters.

AJS Director Rabbi Daniel Raphael Silverstein writes and performs music and poetry under the stage name Danny Raphael. He has started translating some of our most powerful psalms into sacred raps.
