Tisha be'Av


This Monday night (until Tuesday night), the fast day Tisha be'Av begins. It is said that both Tempels were destroyed on that day. Once by the Babylonians and many years later, by the Romans. On Tisha be'Av we are moruning about the loss of the Temple but also hope that Meshiach is coming soon and building the Third Tempel.

Every Erev Tisha be'Av, the "Women in Green" are organizing a march around the Old City walls.

See further information on their website or here:

The march is always quite political but maybe we need to be reminded of the threats against our country !
