Tisha B'Av: Yerushalayim, The United City

The posuk at the beginning of Megillas Eichah states, “Alas, she sits in solitude!

He compares it to a widow who, unfortunately, must also stand alone, without the companionship of her beloved husband. Yerushalayim stands alone, without Klal Yisroel filling its streets with the sounds of life and the service of Hashem.
