Psalms of Healing in Music and Art

Psalms of Healing in Music and Art

Music and art can help us and our students process our emotions, relieve anxiety, and find a sense of meaning and balance in our lives. In Judaism, one way we cope with times of distress is by turning to the wisdom and poetry of the psalms, as well as turning to our communities for strength and support.

Engage students in text study of the Book of Psalms, help them express their understanding of the psalms through visual art and video-making, and learn a variety of songs based on the psalms.
