TISHA B’ AV 5777—A New Day

The Jewish community does this the day after Tisha B’Av every year—they move on. They do not stay focused on tragedies. They spend Tisha B’Av recognizing the horrific events of the past, reflecting on the significance, and then wake-up the next morning to a new day.

Rosh Hashanah 5777 (Leviticus 23:23-25)

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, saying: “In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.”
