When Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations Wednesday, a day after his meeting with President Obama in the White House, he received a special and very timely gift to take home with him to Israel – a copy of the just published Lookstein Edition of the Koren Mesorat HaRav Kinot, the prayers and elegies recited on Tisha B’Av (the Ninth of Av), to commemorate the destruction of the two Temples in Jerusalem and other Jewish tragedies that occurred over the centuries.
