Tisha B'Av Tutorial
8 Av 5771
Tonight the Jewish people will observe one of the saddest days of the Jewish calendar: the 9th (Tisha) of Av (B'Av). Here's a quick tutorial on what it's about.
If you find going without food for a day problematic to your health, speak to an Orthodox rabbi before Tisha B'Av begins. Judaism does NOT advocate ruining your health/self over religious observances.
On an even happier note, Tisha Bav happens on a Tuesday this year. Tuesday is the day Hashem/GOD referenced creation of the world as "ki tov" (it is good) twice. Tuesday is a manifestation of the sefirah of Tiferet (the kabbalistic emanation of beauty and glory into the universe) and thus Tuesday is a day inclined to success and good fortune! (per R. Adin Steinsalz).
May we earn the merit to be blessed by GOD/HaShem with the end of suffering. Be as decent, compassionate and honest as possible. Turn Tisha B'av turn into a Yom Tov (happy holiday)!
