Shmuel 

Description

It is a long-standing tradition in some communities to read David's elegy for Shaul and Yonatan (Shmuel II 1:17-27) on Yom haZikkaron. In this shiur, we review the dirge and point out several nuances which inform the subtextual message of this beautiful plaint for David's best friend - Yonatan - and the fallen king, Shaul. The spirit which animates this soaring passage resonates for all of us today, as we raise the memories of our fallen brothers and sisters who gave their lives that we may have a secure and prosperous Medinah. יהי זכרם ברוך
