Cup of Salvation Classic: Is It Ever Wrong to Praise the Lord?

(Unfortunately, we are unable to release a new episode today, as cohost David Nekrutman is mourning his father, who passed away this week. We extend our sympathies to him.)

Psalms 113:3 seems to indicate that there are times to praise G-d, and times when it is wrong to praise Him. How can this be? Doesn’t G-d deserve our praises no matter what occurs in our lives? In this classic episode from last year, David Nekrutman and Rabbi Pesach Wolicki investigate this provocative topic.

We are grateful to our sponsors: June White in memory of Dolores Talley Brewer, Zion’s Gate International, and Sherry & Randy Lush.
