What is Tisha B’Av?

Today is Tisha B’av.

But, what is Tisha B’av?

Literally, it means, the ninth (tisha) of Av (a month in the Jewish calendar).

On Tisha B’av, we commemorate the destruction of the two Jewish Temples. And we pray for the rebuilding of the Third Temple.

We pray for a world united in peace and prosperity.

The second Temple was said to have been destroyed because of Sinat Chinam—baseless hatred.

What is the antidote to baseless hatred?

Baseless love of course!

I.e. Unconditional Love.

Let the world know no more suffering.

G-d knows we’ve had enough.

A virtual event hosted by my dear friend and I in commemoration of Tisha B’Av and Tu B’Av
