- תהלת ה' ידבר פי - what's the origin? 4 answers
Recently at a Shabbos table I heard that the addition to shir hama'alot "Tehillat Hashem" (a compilation of four verses beginning with Psalms 145:21) was anti-zionistic and shouldn't be said. I heard alternatively that these additions dated to at least as far back as the time of the Arizal. Can anyone explain how these tehillim could be anti-Zionistic, or provide any historical sources for their coming before Zionism?
