tisha b'av - feminist inspiration

Monday July 31 will be eve of Tisha B'Av, the ninth of the month of Av, a day of mourning for Jews around the world.  It is the day we remember the destruction of both Temples that once stood in Jerusalem. There were many other events which befell Jews on this solemn date. The Fast on Tisha B’ Áv closes the three week period of mourning.           

We recommend that you read the relevant segment on ICJW website  - in the Bea Zucker Calendar Study Series – ‘Feminist Inspiration for Living on the Jewish Cycle’ written for ICJW by Dr Bonna Devorah Haberman z/l . ‘Broken Temples and Broken Hearts’.
