   Psalms by Wolf Heidenheim.

The recital of the whole Book of Psalms is widespread, whether as an act of piety by saintly individuals, or by groups of unlearned people. For this purpose "societies of reciters of Psalms" (hevrot tehillim) were and continue to be formed, and in recent times a special society has been formed in Jerusalem whereby two separate groups recite the whole Book of Psalms daily at the Western Wall. The Psalms are included in their entirety in all large prayer books.

Paragraph 2    בצרוף שמוש תהלים וענינים אחרים... מדויק... ומנוקד ומוטעם... מאת וואלף... היידנהיים. מהדר ששי.

רחבו גדול מארכו.
