In the Chabad tradition, the verse selected to represent the letter “Kuf” differs from the common custom. This class carefully analyses the meaning of the 149th verse of Psalm 119, seeking to understand why this would have been selected over the more ubiquitous tradition of Lamentations, 3:56. A profound clarification of the sounds we utter, G-d’s kindness and judgment, and the broader motif of this biblical sentence readily reveals why this verse may have been favored to best prepare for Rosh Hashanah’s climatic Shofar sounding.
