How?

As Jews, we usually do not question God’s ways, but our tradition teaches that on and around Tisha B’Av, we do indeed ask this question, the question. Eichah, meaning, “how?” is the name of Jeremiah’s book of Lamentations, and a question Isaiah asked in the Haftarah that is recited prior to Tisha B’Av.
