I'm reading about Katrina on LJ and we're watching coverage on television, and I can't do anything else (except to donate money to the JDC to help when the time comes), so I took out a book of psalms.

We divide the book of psalms into 30 parts, so you can say the complete book in a month. Tonight is the 24th of the Jewish month. The psalms of the 24th of the month are the psalms of Hallel, the songs of praise - 113-118. We sing them on New Moons and holidays with joy in our voices.

I read them with tears in my eyes.

This storm is not going to bring anything good.

If I may ask - would you mind listing the breakdown? The Book of Psalms is one of my favourite sections of the bible.

This is pretty much it.

We start at the New Moon.

Thank you!
