Lamentations 9/11

View as Single Page Single Page   

I thought it would be a bit odd to have an entire day of posts without mentioning 9/11. On Faith, a joint blog of washingtonpost.com and Newsweek, asks at least one question a week to a group of well-known and representative religious leaders.

Today the question was “On the anniversary of 9/11, what message would you like to send religious extremists?”

The respondents include Irwin Kula, president of CLAL-The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership. He chose instead of answering the question to read actual final cell phone conversations of people chanted to eicha, the melody used for reading the book of Lamentations.

Have a listen. What do you think?
