It is sure to transform one’s perspective on life, God, and repentance.

Each on of the Psalm’s fourteen verses are carefully analyzed to show the intricate message and detailed words that are uniquely suited for this most auspicious and sensitive time of the Jewish cycle. He draws freely and extensively from the storehouses of rabbinic wisdom throughout the ages, and crystallizes the message of Psalm, verse by verse, together with its meaning as a whole, to show the relevance, inspirational content, and beauty of this part of the Jewish calendar, and spark each and every Jew who reads this book closely to experience a more meaningful Elul and Tishrei season.
