Today is Tisha B’Av, a fast day for the Jewish people, a day of mourning and loss. As three weeks ago I posted Jerusalem in Ruins, today I leave here a message of hope and the possibility of redemption. Pictured is the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem, sometimes called the “rova” (quarter). Much construction is going on in that section as we saw on our recent visit. May the physical construction lead to spiritual redemption as well.
