Kinnot: The Tisha B-Av Siddur

Kinnot: The Tisha B-Av Siddur

Kinnot/קינות‎ (also kinnos, kinoth, qinot, qinoth; singular kinah or qinah) are dirges (sad poems) or elegies traditionally recited by Jews on Tisha B'Av to mourn the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem and other tragedies in Jewish history, including the Crusades and the Holocaust.

The Kinnot are recited on the night of Tisha B'Av after reciting the Book of Lamentations, which was also called Kinnot in the Talmudic era (source) before it assumed its more familiar name of Eichah. The term is also used for a dirge or lament especially as sung by Jewish professional mourning women.
