Subject:  Nachem
Message:  What is reason why we don't update the Nachem prayer? After all, Jerusalem is not empty and desolate, unless the prayer also refers to spiritual desolatoin (but this is not true either)?
   
Reply:  I was thinking of updating the Selach Lanu prayer of asking for forgiveness. After all, we don't really give a hoot!


Besides, we first say Laminim VeLamalshinim to clarify in advance why it really is desolate....
