This special prayer was composed by the SheLah Hakadosh to express the prayers of parents on behalf of their children. The SheLah Hakadosh said the optimal time for parents to recite this prayer is Erev Rosh Chodesh Sivan for that is the month when G-d gave us the Torah, and when the Jewish people began to be called His Children however it may be recited anytime. On that day, (the SheLah Hakadosh) writes, fathers and mothers should give charity to the poor and repent. They should even fast, if they are able to.

We at She’arim have been reciting the 83rd chapter of Tehillim for many years. Ever since the Intifada started, we have adopted the recommendation of the rabbonim and begin each day with these Perakim of Tehillim- 20, 83, 121, 130 and 142. We know that all our difficulties in Israel, as unjust as they may be, are real threats, and our most valuable efforts to assure security in Israel is to Daven to our Father in Heaven.
