Parshat Devarim & Tisha B’Av – The balance between remembrance and clinging to hope
Mindfully Jewish, episode #5. The balance between remembrance and clinging to hope
a podcast by Janne L. Punski-Hoogervorst, MD
As the start of Tisha B’Av this year falls on Motzei Shabbos, the texts of Devarim, Isaiah and Eicha become linked into one message. In this weeks episode we therefore take a closer look at some lessons that shine forth throughout all three texts. What message do Moshe, Isaiah and Jeremiah provide us underneath the words of rebuke? Can we find words of faith and hope in the deeply moving passages of Isaiah and Eicha?
לִמְד֥וּ הֵיטֵ֛ב דִּרְשׁ֥וּ מִשְׁפָּ֖ט אַשְּׁר֣וּ חָמ֑וֹץ שִׁפְט֣וּ יָת֔וֹם רִ֖יבוּ אַלְמָנָֽה:
May we see the rebuilding of Jerusalem speedily and in our days.
