The Eichah (Lamentations) app provides the full Hebrew text, with vowels and cantillation marks, of Megillat Eichah, with an English translation based on the translation done by the Jewish Publication Society in 1917. We have updated the English text to replace thee and thou, hast and didst, and other similar archaisms. The app also includes background and descriptive materials about Eichah, its liturgical use on Tisha b'Av (Ninth of Av), and related customs.
The text of Eichah can be viewed with Hebrew and English side-by-side (in either portrait or landscape mode), or in Hebrew or English only, in seven font sizes. The text is laid out with Hebrew verse numbers for the Hebrew text and regular numbers for the English text. You can go directly to any chapter. When both Hebrew and English are displayed together, the scrolling stays synchronized verse by verse.
A calendar function displays the Gregorian date of Tisha b'Av for any year from 1900 onward.
