The Ninth of Av

Columbus and the Ninth of Av by Martha Hoeber Tisha b’Av, the ninth day of the month of Av (which in our calendar always falls around the end of July or the beginning of August), is the date on which, twice, the Temple was destroyed, first by Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian army in 587 BC, and the […]


Jesus is not a Pinata!
