My Notes for Kinot - A Free Download

As is the custom in many shuls today, each year at YIOP, we would not recite each and every kinah, but instead chose a few to recite together, and I would offer some commentary on each kinah beforehand, to give people a sense of the richness and depth of the poetry, language and meaning.

I never recorded the kinnot (and there are many good online resources for those looking to the web for Tisha B'av), but if you're interested, here are my notes about the Kinot (including page numbers from the Artscroll Kinot) with some source sheets at the end. I hope that you find them useful and meaningful.
