The short version: In 2010, our group's co-founder became seriously ill with an unknown disease. She called across the country to Rabbi Yossi Mizrachi who she had seen teaching Torah on www.torahanytime.com. He shared some advice, "Say Tehillim and cry to Hashem. Hashem listens to prayers with tears."
She had always wanted to get into Tehillim but hadn't gotten done much about it. Though she had embraced observant Judaism in her teenage years, Tehillim was not on the "curriculum." Learning to daven (pray), keep Shabbos (the Sabbath), bentch (blessing after meals), etc., of course! But saying Tehillim?! Not really.
Through Hashem's loving hand, the next issue of Bina Magazine featured a group that said one psalm a day. That sounded like just what the rabbi ordered. Joining the group gave a slow, solid way to start saying psalms. (To understand the slightly longer version of this story, see the AISH article.)
Saying tehillim enriched her life so much, she felt compelled to share it with others.
In Elul 2011, the shul rebbetzin and this woman with the unknown disease started their own local One a Day Gratitude Tehillim Group with 15 people in Mercer Island, Washington. Ladies from across the lake (Seattle) heard about it and asked to join. From there they began gathering members in other states and countries, connecting many women through the sisterhood of tehillim. When the Aish article hit the web, we picked up 120 new members and people continue joining all the time!
We welcome you to join us! Let Tehillim enhance your life as it has done for so many others.
To say One Psalm a Day, in unity and with gratitude.
