Psalm 1

Recommended for older teens and adults

Many of the oldest poems on record are associated with prayer and some of our best examples of ancient Jewish poetry are inside the Book of Psalms. Through original poetry and music Elijah Aaron and Ted Newiss explore the path of the righteous versus that of the wicked in this modern adaption of Psalm 1.


The Psalms Project

In 2013, G‑dcast invited artists and poets from around the world to reinterpret a biblical psalm of their choice.  Each of the submitted entries expressed a unique perspective into Jewish life and art today. While a panel of judges ultimately selected adaptions of Psalm 1Psalm 23Psalm 42 and Psalm 90, many of the semi-finalists can be heard on soundcloud (here).

Thank you to The Koret Foundation for funding the Psalms Project, as part of an initiative to cultivate Jewish peoplehood. Additional thanks to each of the writers, narrators, producers, educators, judges, directors and sound engineers including Elijah Aaron, Barbara Barza, Maya Bernstein, Lucas Boilon, Charlie Corriea, Jina Davidovich, Danielle Foreman, Sarah Kashinsky, Sarah Lefton, Rachel Levinson, Andrew Lewitin, Neville Mickinnie, Mariangela Mihai, Eurico da Costa Ng, Russel Neiss, Ted Newiss, Alicia Jo Rabins, Will Robertson, Rachel Lopez Rosenberg, Jeremy Shuback, Allie Woilner, Dan Wolf, Evan Wolkenstein and Ariel Root Wolpe.
