It's Elul, the beginning of Psalm 27 time

It's Elul, time for reciting Psalm 27 morning and evening. So I'm posting links to some songs based on that psalm.

Here's Chava Mirel's "Achat Sha'alti."

Here's a video of Eliana Light's "Koli Ekra."  She included this song on her new album, "ORAH HI." 

(Eliana also posted what I think she would call a learning guide to "Koli Ekra" here.)

Also, you might want to check out Eliana's "If Only" (Lulei).  Here's the audio-only link--it's #6.

And many thanks to  Cantor Jacqueline Rafii and Josh Goldberg for this Mizrachi/Ashkenazi mash-up of "Achat Sha'alti."

As if these goodies aren't enough, here's Elana Arian singing her version of "Koli Ekra."

And here's a link to Aly Halpert's "Achat Sha'alti," along with some good High Holiday resources from the Hadar Institute.

You might be interested to know that German Jews traditionally do not receite Psalm 27 at the end of davening throughout Elul and Yomim Noraim.

That's interesting. Thanks for the information. Here's wishing you a belated Shanah Tovah.
