Abridged Version: Beginning and Ending Verses
Kinah for Tisha BeAb Evening & Daytime Taking Out Torah
Introductory Kinah For Tisha BeAb
Kinot for Tisha BeAb Morning #2
Kinot for Tisha BeAb Morning #3
Performed by Rabbi Ira Rohde
This kinah (elegy) is sung on the morning of the Ninth of Ab. It is a bitter lament describing the uprooting and exile of the Jewish people from their homeland. In this recording, the kinah is sung by Rabbi Ira Rohde with a musical accompaniment composed and performed by him. The musical accompaniment is in the style of a medieval Spanish folksong from which the traditional melody is likely derived. When sung in the synagogue the kinah is heard without any musical accompaniment.
