HaHodesh - Your Monthly Look Ahead

As we enter August we enter the month of Av, in which we mark the most devastating moments in the Jewish calendar. Tisha b'Av, the Ninth of Av, is the unofficial start of the High Holy Day season. On this day we recall calamities, from the fall of the Temple to Rome to the start of the Spanish Inquisition. As we grieve that which has befallen our people in times past, we begin to guide our minds to a place of vulnerability. From here we are able to reflect on our personal sorrows, regrets, and missteps. Rising out our place of sorrow, we will begin the slow climb of deep contemplation that will lead us to Elul, and from there into our new year.
