"Ve'Lerushalayim Ircha:" Awakening Mercy Everlasting - Audio Shiur
Reb Yerachmiel has come through with his second shiur on the topic of berchas "Ve'Lerushalayim Ircha" in Shmoneh Esrei this past Sunday night at the Baltimore Community Kollel.
In this shiur book-ended by beautiful niggunim, Reb Yerachmiel discusses the opening phrase "Ve'Lerushalayim ircha b'rachamim tashuv" and focuses on a yesod from the Vilna Gaon who taught that the magnitude of Rachamei Shamayim that one can awaken from Heaven above, particularly in the context of bringing the Ultimate Geula, is only commensurate with the magnitude of the feelings of loss and brokenness one feels in response to the damage and destruction of Hashem's Holy City, Hashem's Holy House and Hashem's Holy Name.
