From the Rabbi
You’ve been hearing a lot of from me recently about Tisha B’Av. For those who think of the holiday only in terms of the destruction of the ancient Temple, my attention to it may not make a whole lot of sense. For those who understand the Three Weeks and the holiday itself to be a container for the grief and rage that we feel at the brokenness in the world, at failures of humanity and the spread of senseless hatred, then Tisha B’Av is all too relevant. My piece for Truah.org: “The Weeping Mother Speaks,” is about one of the most basic connections between the ancient themes of the holiday and the situation in our world today.
