A short series of shiurim given online only by Rabbi Cohen based upon the sefer "She’eilos U’Teshuvos Mi’maamakim" by Rabbi Ephraim Oshry. This moving sefer was written during the Holocaust in the Kovno Ghetto as Rabbi Oshry grappled with issues of halacha and observance amongst his fellow Jews in the ghetto. This window into the suffering and spiritual triumph of our people during this dark period is an important lesson we can especially learn and be inspired by during the three week period leading up to Tisha B'Av.
