1/ A thread for #9Av 5781. #ReshetKeshet

I've noticed, now having three b'nai mitzvah kids, that nobody gives a kinot book as a gift. Can't blame them, of course. We have a necessary ideology that 9Av can change to a holiday very soon, so why gift a book?
2/ I like Rabbi Dr. @NatanSlifkin's nuance to what "sinat chinam" - normally translated as "baseless hatred" - means. It's hatred that brings no gain; it's hurting yourself in order to hurt your perceived enemy more.

Sounds familiar in our day, no?…
3a/ OTOH, this story by Dinah Paritzky is horrifying. Not only is it cruel & abusive, not only can the lesson be taught in less violent means, it's the wrong lesson! The impulse to concentrate on the physical building is #Literalist, as is the cruel act.… This all changed for me when I was 17. I went to Bnei Akiva

#Ierushalaim: ¿llorando por una ciudad destruida o reconstruida? ¿No es algo infantil lamentarse por una pérdida material?

Sale #hilo sobre #TishaBeAv
En el año 1869, el famoso escritor norteamericano, Mark Twain visitó la Tierra de Israel y registró sus periplos en el libro: "Una placentera excursión a Tierra Santa". Su descripción es estremecedora, un lugar inhóspito y desolado. "Fue como asistir a un velorio pero sin muerto"
Por el contrario, todo el que tuvo el mérito de visitar Israel en las últimas décadas, se ha encontrado con un país pujante, una infraestructura de primer mundo, una economía en sólido crecimiento (descartando la actual pandemia) y a la vanguardia del desarrollo tecnológico.
