Shiva Asar B' Tamuz with Drisha

Sunday, July 21, 2019 18 Tammuz 5779

All Day

The Seventeenth of Tamuz commemorates the day that the Romans breached the outer wall of Jerusalem. From this point, the destruction of the Temple just three weeks later may have been inevitable, but both historians and rabbinic legends suggest that there were earlier points at which the ultimate calamity could have been avoided.

In our own lives, we sometimes have experiences -- be they personal, communal or national -- that give us a feeling of sliding toward catastrophe. How do we respond to such foreboding, especially when not everyone around us shares the same feeling? We will examine this sensation through the lens of episodes from Tanakh, rabbinic literature, and Jewish history, as well as personal histories of crisis and recovery.
