Just in time for Tishah b’Av, Koren has brought out a fine new edition of the liturgy for the fast including the Book of Lamentations and the kinot – dirges – recited on the saddest day of the calendar. It comes with an extensive commentary from the late Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik based on his lectures.
