Tisha B’Av Explained
Please Note: This CD-ROM Series can be played on standard CD Players in your car or at home.
The Three Weeks of Mourning, which commemorate the destruction of the First and Second Holy Temples and the ensuing exile, have significance for every Jewish individual. With all the tragedy in our bloody history, our mourning should be endless, but the Talmudic Rabbis in their wisdom, limited our mourning to these Three Weeks. Yet inevitably, as time passes, people become numbed to their own history. With both historical and halachic analysis, Rabbi Wein awakens us to the true meaning of the Three Weeks.
With detailed portrayals of the leading personalities and events at the darkest moment of Jewish history, Rabbi Wein brings out the traitorous dealings of Josephus Flavius, the fall of the zealots of Masada, and above all the sagacity of Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai who helped the Jewish people to maintain their faith that the Temple would someday be rebuilt.
Going even further back in Jewish History we discuss the destruction of the First Temple was more than a pivotal event in Jewish history, it was a radical shift in our relationship with God. In this memorable lecture, Rabbi Wein addresses the spiritual and philosophical questions raised by the loss of the Temple and sheds light on the insights given by the Talmudic rabbis. This is a Must Hear Series for Tisha B’Av!
