Description

"Nachem", the addition to Birkat Yerushalayim which is said at Minhah of Tish'ah b'Av, has generated much interest in the last 50 years as the descriptions of Jerusalem in that prayer stand in dissonance with the blessed and miraculous reality of a city restored, a thriving metropolis under Jewish sovereignty. Year by year, colleagues and I have received requests to "tweak" the Tefillah and to make it resonate more harmoniously with Hashem's blessings in our day. Dr. Avi Shmidman and Rabbi Ben-Tzion Spitz of Alon Shvut and I spent a good part of this past year working on a proposed alternative Nusach of the prayer that shifts the focus of our mourning to the Temple Mount and the Beit HaMikdash.
