Subject:  Sefer(perek) shira
Message:  Q. I have often read that reciting the perek shirah is only second in 'importance' to reciting Ketoret. With such an emphasis, why don't we know more about perek shirah, and why is it not part of our daily tefillah?

Tizku leshanim rabot.

Reply: What is Perek Shirah?

Perek Shira was attributed to David Hamelech composed of verses (biblical) that articulate the song of creation (the song of the universe) to g-d. It begins with the promise that those who recite it are assured of a place in Olam Haba.
Reply:  Not if they don't pray 3 times a day.

We say Tehillim (Psalms), we do all these wonderful things, but the basics we ignore. Let us try getting the job done on the standard laws required by God. There is no extra credit if you did not get the regular stuff perfect.

Let us all snap out it.
