Raize Guttman 08-07-22 (10 Av 5782)

Tisha B'Av shiur 

Today we observe Tisha B'Av and fast.  Yesterday  was Shabbos, so it was pushed off for one day because there is no sign of mourning on Shabbos.

Our Fast began yesterday at sunset. Tisha B’Av evening services were held in synagogue, where the Ark was stripped of its decorative curtain and the lights dimmed. Evening prayers were followed by the chanting of Megillah Eicha (Lamentations).  Besides fasting today, we abstain from additional pleasures: washing, applying lotions or creams, wearing leather shoes, and marital relations. Until midday, we sit on the floor or on low stools.

We read Kinot today in our attempts to fulfill the requirement to mourn.  Raize gives us some insight into Kinnah #11 & 23.
