The start of Elul: Psalm 27


We customarily recite Psalm 27, “l’Dovid HaShem Ori,” at the end of Shacharit in the morning and at the end of Maariv in the evening, from the first day of Elul through Sh’mini Atzeret.

There are many reasons to recite this psalm in particular, but the general reason is that this chapter of Tehillim discusses Divine acceptance of our repentance.

(Mishneh Berurah 581:2)

Have a great day,
