Resources for Tisha b'Av
Wednesday, 10 July 2013
As the fast of Tisha b'Av (the 9th of Av) approaches, here are some resources from synagogues, rabbis and educators across the country, to help us explore what Tisha b’Av might mean for us today, and whether or not it is something we should be bothered with at all. The fast marks the date both Temples were destroyed, and has become associated with a plethora of Jewish disasters through the ages. Please use them to learn and to teach, but always credit the author for their work. We are very grateful to those who have shared, and ask you to consider what you can offer for a future festival!
