Tisha b'Ab: Bore Ad Ana

The Western Sephardic melodies for Tisha b’Ab, including the book of Ekhah (Lamentations) and the Kinnot (elegies), are unique, haunting, and beautiful. One of the most poignant Kinnot is Bore Ad Ana, which personifies the Jewish people as a wandering dove, searching for her father and crying out for his love and protection. Recordings of the New York, London, and Bordeaux versions of the song can be heard in the links below, and you will see their subtle differences:

Congregation Shearith Israel in New York has also prepared recordings of much of the beautiful liturgy for Tisha b’Ab:
