Helper and Shield (Episode 28)

Psalms 115:9 describes G-d as the “helper” and “shield” of Israel. Is that the same as a savior? What exactly is G-d helping us with? Who is the verse speaking to? And what is this strange ritual that Rabbi Pesach Wolicki engages in whenever he flies overseas? Join David Nekrutman as he and Rabbi Wolicki delve into the precise Hebrew to find the answers – and a relevant message for all who do battle for the Lord.
