  2. Do you think we can start a tehilim chain here?
    I will begin now with chapters 1, 2, 3.

    Next reader, please indicate which chapters you can say, going in consecutive order…you only need to say the chapter(s) ONE TIME at the time you post…if you are available to say more on another day, see where we are up to, and post again going in consecutive order thru the sefer. Let’s hope for besoros tovos.

  3. Don’t worry if there is overlapping of tehillim. It is bound to happen because of time delay after posting. The more said the better.
