Energized, Not Paralyzed

Friday, 5 August, 2022 - 10:01 am

This weekend is Tisha B’av, a day of mourning and commemoration for the Jewish people. Negative emotions can be paralyzing or energizing. The only type that is appropriate for us to experience as Jews in the mourning period, is the energizing type. Here are a few articles from previous years that revolve around this approach to Tisha B’av.

Dancing Over Destruction:

Spin Doctor or Purveyor of Truth:

Happy Tisha B’Av:

Getting Comfortable with the Beit Hamikdash:

Is it Time to Move On:

May we channel this energy into the actions needed to bring us from mourning to joy, from exile to Redemption with the rebuilding of our Holy Temple speedily.

Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Mendel Rivkin
