Tisha B’Av 5769: Finding Hope in the Destruction

June 29, 2010, by

Finding Hope in the Destruction Presented by Rabbi Yaakov Glasser. Rabbi Glasser’s shiur is geared towards teenagers, but it is appropriate for adults as well. Tisha B’Av is also called a Mo’ed; it’s not exclusively a sad day when we mourn the Beit HaMikdash. There is also an element that focuses on hope, on the future.
