Tisha B'av

Tisha B'av begins tonight at sundown and continues until tomorrow night. It is a day of intense mourning for the loss of the Temple and the destruction of Jeruaselem. We fast, we pray, we foreswear, for one day, creature comforts, with the intent on becoming better people,

Yesterday I stood with 130,000 Jews in unity in Israel, and I don't know how many people in other countries.

With G-d's will the harshness of the day will be overturned, we will see the Temple rebuilt and the day will go from one of mourning to celebration.
