Hallel is recited on festivals and on Rosh Hodesh. What is so powerful about psalms 113-118 that they be marked as expressions of joy at past miracles and our faith in future ones?
Who recited Hallel first? Was it by the Jews at the Red Sea? Or, was it Joshua defeating the kings in Canaan? Or, was it Deborah and Barak when they destroyed the army of Sisera?

Rich in history, and powerful in language, these psalms have been a source of inspiration, learning, and musical momentum for three millennia. We’ll delve into the commandment of reciting Hallel.

Join Cantor Jan Morrison in an exploration of the psalms that comprise Hallel.
