   Psalms with a Yiddish translation in prose by Israel Levine of Malden, Mass. 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. Many tears were and continue to be shed during its recital - as it is considered a direct method of communication with the Creator. Jewish woman recite Psalms on a daily basis as a protection from all evil for their families and a remedy to all that wants. 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.
