As we approach the 9th of Av, and the mourning of many catastrophes that have befallen the Jewish people over the millennia, we will be posting through Friday on this theme.
To start, the following film entitled "HomeGame" is available for (free) online viewing through the end of Tisha B'Av. (Its a 67 minute movie, so plan your time accordingly)
I highly recommend the film -- its about teenagers from Gush Katif during the 2005 Disengagement from Gaza.
It took 19 years for the refugees of Gush Etzion to return and rebuild their homes destroyed in 1948. We hope that already next year, Gush Katif will be in the process of being rebuilt.
The film starts off with a "trailer" and then continues a few seconds later automatically to the film.
Tisha B'Av evening Wednesday, July 29 - join the Women in Green as they March around the Walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. But first the reading of Eichah will take place in front of the US Consulate on Agron Street at 8:00pm.
