9 Av, 5774
Today is an historically, unspeakably sad day on the Jewish calendars: Tisha B'Av, the 9th day of the Jewish month Av.
The Jewish world is focused on specific prayers today, and on character improvement (a lifelong project) everyday A lot of sad life lessons are on our minds. But Jews optimistically anticipate the Messianic arrival, which is clearly closer than ever with the passage of time.
