Reading, chanting, singing the Psalms w/Morah Makedah

Starting 2nd Sunday in March of 2022, by the grace of El Shaddai, I will be offering tutorials in the Hebrew Tehillim on Zoom.  Students will learn how to read, understand and sing psalms in Hebrew from the Tanakh.  This class is sponsored by and is free for all patrons (monthly subscribers) of Queen Makedah.

From beyond the rivers of Ethiopia My worshipers, The daughter of My dispersed ones, Shall bring My offering.” - Zephaniah 3:10

Yisrael was created as a royal priesthood for the glory of Yah and was called to bring glory and honor to His holy name through offerings of praise: 

  • Isaiah 43:21 This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise. 

As a royal priesthood we should be able to bring forth sacrifices of praise to our Elohim in personal, family and congregational worship, which is an important part of our culture.    

  • Psalm 9:14  - That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation. 
  • Psalm 100:4 - Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 
  • Psalm 118:19-20 - Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise YHWH: 20 This gate of  YHWH, into which the righteous shall enter. 

  The good news is, we were blessed with a songbook, the Book of Psalms called Tehillim written in Hebrew.  

  • Psalm 98:5 Sing unto YHWH with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm (song of praise). 
  • Psalm 105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms (songs of praise) unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works. 


The Holy Tongue in worship: 

The prophets told us that YHWH would return the holy tongue so that us that we can again worship Him on one accord:  

  • Zephaniah 3.9-10 “Then I will return to the people a pure language, that all of them may call on the name of YHWH and serve him with one consent. 

If you are from the lost tribes of Israel, you may not currently speak, read, or write Hebrew but may long to gain this knowledge and use it in prayer, praise and worship. 

Starting in the spring of 2022, by Yah’s grace, I will be leading a monthly tutorial in the Hebrew Tehillim, teaching people to read and/or sing Tehillim and other prayers from the Tenakh.  Some of the Hebrew tehillim will be versions of songs I’ve recorded or have yet to record.  There may also be special guest psalmists.

This class is appropriate if you'd like to:

  • Learn to read Hebrew alef bet, words, phrases and prayers 
  • Understand Torah or Tanakh better through vocabulary building 
  • Learn to sing psalms in Hebrew for personal, family or congregational use. 

The class is appropriate for individuals, families and praise and worship leaders. 


    Each class will focus on a different psalm, either in part or whole.  Students will learn the context, theme/structure, vocabulary, reading and singing of select psalms.

    When possible, printable downloads, digital flashcards, links will be made available to class for practice. 

    Student Levels: 

    This class will be appropriate for beginners through advanced Hebrew speakers. 


    The class will be held 2nd Sundays.


    • Hebrew Tehillim, Tanakh, common prayers and blessings 
    • Instructor created materials (Shabbat Prayers e-book available via the Patron VIP Homepage)
    • Online articles 
    • Interlinear book of Tehillim (Artscroll)

    Types of Tehillim: 

    In this class we will cover various types of Tehillim, such as:

    • Daily prayers 
    • Shabbat prayers and blessings 
    • National prayers 
    • Pseukei d’Zimrah (preceding Shabbat) 
    • Hallel Psalms (Psalms 113-118)  
    • Prayers of healing for the sick or distressed
    • Prayers of teshuvah or confession


    Our goal will be to learn a new psalm each month, which may be a part or whole psalm.
