Between the Straits

For Jews, this summer includes three weeks of mourning leading up the saddest day in our calendar, the 9th of the month of Av. This was the day Jerusalem fell and the temple was destroyed. That moment of our history turns out to be, in many ways, the defining one of Jewish memory and a pivotal event in the creation of rabbinic (modern day) Judaism.
