 Tisha B'Av - Fast Day

The Jewish story is one continuous story that never gets interrupted.  Every generation adds it unique Sefer to a continuous book.  What is our role in continuing and enhancing that story, and bringing that powerful story to completion with geulah shaleimah.

Jews never believe that there is a breakdown, where there is not also an invitation for a new birth.  One door closes and another opens.

Rosh Chodesh Av
The Nine Days

When we enter the month of Av, we decrease our joy.  We never lose it, we open ourselves up to our compassion.  We have to connect to Hashem through our sadness we are feeling.   We don't view our history as a past, we live the same event today.

Our learning today is dedicated to Yisroel Nisson Sofer ben Moshe Noach zt'l (Judi Kirk's beloved zayde who's Yahrzeit is today).  May his neshama have an aliyah.
