Welcome to a new year which just began tonight, Erev Rosh Hashana.
It is 5773 AM (anno mundi) on the Hebrew calendar.
It is also Sunday, the day on which blogger Psalm illustrators come together at Robert's PsalmChallenge in Athens.
Today's psalm has the well-known and heartfelt verse 9 which, changed into plural, is part of the Yom Kippur liturgy.
Here is Psalm 71:
Translation by Rabbi Benjamin J. Segal. See also the Hebrew original there and his analysis of the psalm.
4: A soulful friend sings to God.
1-3: Lad LaKashish / Lifeline for the Old center: workshops and giftshop.
