9th of Av

Today is tisha B'Av, the 9th day of the Jewish month of Av, the saddest day in the Jewish calendar. This is a day of hopelessness, a day when all we can do is cry. This is the day that the gates of prayer are closed, and God gives us the cold shoulder.

This year we have been feeling the 9th of av more then usual.
