On Tisha B’Av and the merits of public mourning
Lovely. Wish I had read this earlier in the cycle, I might have felt more inclined to observe the fast more seriously this year. Will keep it in mind for future years.
Beautiful. Thank you.
Beautifully stated. We currently are traveling in Portugal, where Maimonides and the Jewish community flourished under the Moors, and then expelled, tortured and massacred a little less than a century later. The Jewish population here is tiny, but the memory of the past lingers, with memorials in Lisbon and Porto. I really welcome your posts.
