REMINDER: Saturday night - Walk around the Walls of the Old City

-- Advertisement --

Tisha b'Av (9th of Av) is this Saturday night. Just remember to join the traditional Walk around the Walls of the Old City.

Every year on Tisha B'Av, thousands of Jews gather and walk around the walls of the Old City, in a fitting tribute to its destruction, and hope for its complete rebuilding.

This year the evening starts (like always) with the reading of Eichah on Motzei Shabbat (August 9, 2008) at Kikar Safra at 9:30 pm followed by the walk.

Here is a video from Tisha B'Av last year:



The Walk around the Walls of the Old City of Jerusalem is a very emotional and inspiring experience. It is relevant way to appreciate this day.

Why do these stories keep getting swept under the rug? The frum community has a substance abuse problem. Wake up and address it!

Or is everyone waiting until it happens to MY child?
