Rabbi Andrew Jacobs talks about Tisha B’Av, the holiday that marks the destruction of the ancient Temple. It is a solemn holiday that involves mourning and fasting as we remember the loss of the Temple. Rabbi Andrew explores the Kabbalistic view of shattering – and how great things come about as a result of other things falling apart. He relates this to Tisha B’Av and the destruction of the Temple. From the ashes of the Temple came Rabbinic Judaism – the religion that has become the faith embraced by Jews today. As a result of the destruction of the Temple, Judaism evolved into a sustainable, meaningful and inclusive religion. From shattering comes blessing.
