Touched By Their Tears - A Kinnos Companion

| |

During the Three Weeks and, especially, on Tishah B’Av, we mourn the destruction of the Beis HaMikdash, the Holy Temple of Jerusalem. Yet how many of us do this by rote, without truly feeling the pain? How can we tap into a true well of emotion for an event that took place thousands of years ago? And how can we use that mourning as an impetus to becoming better Jews?

In this fascinating and much-needed book, bestselling author Rabbi Yechiel Spero helps us understand the Temple’s Destruction, and the proper Jewish response to it. Most of the Kinnos, the Lamentations traditionally said on Tishah B’Av, are explained and their message is illustrated by powerful true stories that bring them to vivid life. In Touched by Their Tears we learn how to mourn - and we learn how to hope.

In his bestselling Touched by a Story series, Rabbi Spero taught us the power of a great story. In Touched by a Prayer, he taught us the power of our tefillos. Now, in this unique book, he teaches us the power of our own tears. It is a lesson that will change the way we live, on Tishah B’Av and throughout the year.
