Jews Sing...and Mourn...and Pray

Sometimes, even if you don't understand the words, you can understand the emotions.

This video is from the Kotel, singing on Tisha B'Av. The next is from 11 years ago, as Israel stood on the edge of a unilateral destruction of the communities in Gush Katif and Northern Shomron. We knew, even then, it was such a bad idea...even the media, left and pro-expulsion, even they realized the depths of the faith it took for us to survive that horrible time.

First - at the Kotel - a united people begging God for the ultimate redemption, the coming of the Messiah and a true end to our wandering.

And young women praying in N'vei Dekalim days before the destruction. I have watched this so many times and I have not yet once succeeded in not crying with them, for them, for all of us.
