TISHA B'AV - WHY DO WE NEED TO REMEMBER?

TISHA B'AV - WHY DO WE NEED TO REMEMBER?

Why do I need a Temple? Why should we remember it, much less fast? And what a strange way to remember – mourning and fasting? We live well without the Temple and do not suffer from its absence. Isn't it time to tackle the future instead of digging into the past?
The spiritual and cultural life of the Jewish People during Temple times, and the destruction of the Temples and our dispersion among the nations teach us many relevant lessons for today and things we all need to fix.

We discussed these topics, including insights from Corona, with famous tour guide and educator David Wainshtein, as the fast of Tisha B’av began, putting us in the right frame of mind for the rest of this important day.
