The hallel psalms are a group of psalms (113-118) that are traditionally recited in Jewish ceremonies. They are recited verbatim altogether to offer praise and thanksgiving on joyous occasions, such as traditional Jewish holidays.

Often the authors of a psalm gave a particular title or certain instructions to a psalm so that future generations would recognize its particular purpose and the reason for its creation. In addition, certain psalms were penned for a specific occasion or for a particular use.
