As one of the earliest and most potent forms of written supplication, Psalms are found throughout the Jewish prayer services. As we enter the period of the High Holidays, we focus on certain Psalms which have become the central chords of the melody of Elul and Rosh Hashanah: Psalm 27 (said every day), Psalm 24 (said after Ma’ariv of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) and Psalm 130 (said before Yishtabach in the 10 days of Teshuvah).
