SPONSORING TEHILIM FOR THE MONTH
Psalm 119, which contains eight verses for every letter of the Hebrew alphabet is a widely used and accepted sugulah, talisman, recited as a merit for one who is ill. Use this tool’s keyboard (will open in a new window and download to your computer) to type a complete Hebrew name and the verses corresponding to the letters of the name will appear.
It is also auspicious to be recited on a yahrtzeit, anniversary of someone’s death, or at a gravesite.
Who we are and what we do.
The Tehilim Hotline is based in Brooklyn, New York and was founded in 1998. Our focus is helping our brethren through the power of prayer — as one Jew to another.
We say Tehilim on behalf of you. We have volunteers who recite the Book of Psalms/Tehilim in its entirety twelve times daily! We have had over 19,509 participants and hundreds of volunteers.
We have a global reach and have helped change hundreds of lives.
Dovid HaMelech ע”ה (King David), authored the Tehilim. He composed these songs while in danger, wandering in the deserts from his enemies and also during times of joy and light.
In his Psalms, Dovid joined the tribulations of his people with his own. When he petitioned for himself he petitioned for the entire nation, for he identified well with their suffering and with their joy.
Through these psalms Dovid drew closer to G-d. it has become customary for Jews to grab the sefer Tehilim at those times when one needs to reach out to Hashem for salvation or for praise.

Although we are told that all prayers are answered, it seems to us that many requests remain unfulfilled. Though tefilos (prayers) are never rejected, this does not mean that Hashem complies with our total request. He may answer it only partially, or sometimes put it aside, for Hashem knows what…

The B’nei Yissachar (Rabbi Zvi Elimelech Shapiro of Dynov, 1783-1841) writes that upon uttering H-shem’s name in the Mussaf prayer on Rosh Chodesh of each month which ends “Blessed are you H-shem, Who sanctifies Israel and the New Moons.”, one should concentrate on a specific word combination taken from particular…
