KMTT - Megillat Eikha with Rav Yitzchak Etshalom

In this series, which was given in memory of Moreinu haRav Aharon Lichtenstein zt"l during the year of his passing, Rav Etshalom explores the various literary, historic and intertextual tropes which shape this most powerful Biblical expression of loss and tragedy. These monumental five chapters give expression to the overpowering sense of impotence and isolation in the aftermath of the events of the beginning of the 6th century BCE as well as eventually - perhaps a generation or two later -  opening up a path to prayer and ultimately, return.
