Roy’s Blog: “Tisha Ba’ Av”

Daniel 9:27 “And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week [tribulation] he will stop the offering and sacrifices.”

The ninth of Av, the day of the sin of the spies, and the destruction of the first and second Temples in Jerusalem. Av is the fifth month of the Jewish calendar, and this Friday at sundown starts the “remembrance” of their sins and the loss of both temples.

The director of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem declared, “Tisha B’ Av is not about mourning. It is about acting to bring the Holy Temple back to the world–a ‘house of prayer for all nations’.”

He declares, “It’s time to vote with our feet and send a clear message to the world: Now is the time. The dream of 2000 years is finally within our reach. We truly hope and pray for a time of unparalleled world peace and harmony with the building of the Third Temple.”
