"Destruction and Renewal" -- A Website for Every Jew
Tonight and tomorrow, August 9 and 10, marks the 1,930th year since
the destruction of our Holy Temple in Jerusalem. This day, known as
Tisha B'Av (the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av), is rife with
We mourn the past, by fasting and refraining from other worldly
pleasures, but look forward to and pray for our bright future. We
lament our misdeeds, which caused the destruction, but prepare for the
upcoming redemption with acts of charity.
We invite you to explore this extraordinary day by visiting:
While there, you can take a detailed tour of the Holy Temple, gain
insight into the Jewish People's experience in exile, and discover
simple, how-to instructions to observe the fast-day. You can also
debate whether G-d had the "legal right" to destroy our/His Temple,
discover the implications of disharmony, and lots more.
