About this title
Authored by Rabbi Pesach Wolicki, Cup of Salvation: A Powerful Journey Through King David's Psalms of Praise is a careful study of the original Hebrew text of Psalms 113-118, also known as the "Hallel", leading us on a journey of praise and worship for all that God does in our lives.
Rabbi Pesach Wolicki is a renowned Bible educator and speaker. Rabbi Wolicki currently serves as Associate Director at the Center for Jewish Christian Understanding and Cooperation (CJCUC) in Jerusalem.
Imagine sitting with six friends, old friends whom you truly believe you know, not casually but intimately. Yet a third party arrives and begins to show you who they really are, how they think, their deepest feelings and most profound insights. You find you are amazed. These friends are far deeper, far more complex than you had realized. They not only tell you things about themselves but they speak you about who you are and who God is. The six friends are the Psalms in The Great Hallel, Psalms 113-118. The interlocutor in this scene, the third party is Rabbi Pesach Wolicki and I highly recommend his lovely new book. Let a Rabbi from Jerusalem take you deeper into Hallel and, as never before, you will love these Psalms and the God whom they praise.
Mark Rutland, President of Global Servants
The Psalms embody the prayers of Israel s worship and the great Hallel (Ps 113-118) is particularly meaningful to the Jewish community. It is the praise given for the miraculous deliverance at Passover and now for the establishment of the State of Israel. It is meaningful for the Christian community because it is connected to the hymn sung at the Last Supper. Rabbi Wolicki s insightful new book follows the path of legendary Bible commentator Rashi by probing the foundational meanings and expressions of the Hebrew text. Rabbi Wolicki uses the Bible to interpret the Bible. He skillfully unpacks Torah wisdom embedded in the Psalms. His personal commentary provides fresh spiritual meaning and practical application. His work is sure to challenge each reader with a new depth of awareness for the miraculous in history and the need to express praise for covenant fidelity and for divine mercy.

The disciples sang a hymn at the end of their Passover meal (Mt 26:30). What hymn did they sing? There is little doubt that they sang the Hallel psalms 113-118, the psalms that Rabbi Wolicki explains with accessible and fascinating erudition in this book. Christians will profit immensely by learning what these Hebrew words mean and by seeing how Orthodox Jewish scholars understand these ancient Scriptures.
