This class focuses on the verse (Eicha, 1:13) “From on High He sent a Fire...” Our sages understood this to mean literally: G-d Himself actually rained down fire to burn the Beit HaMikdash so the heathens could not boast that they destroyed it themselves! From beneath G-d metaphorically spreads out an ensnaring trap as Jerusalem hurling us back into our exile of desolation and dysfunction whose expiration date seems to have come and gone without redemptive transformation. This all sounds most unusual; yet its message may well surprise inspire you.
