Recommended Reading for the Nine Days

During this time of year, when we mourn for the destruction of Tzion and Yerushalayim, for the churban Beis Ha’Mikdash and the loss of our holy places, we remember all churbanos (all destructions) that have befallen our people since the Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago.

These books are highly recommended for any time of the year, but are especially appropriate for The Three Weeks/Tisha B’Av. 

כל המתאבל על ירושלים זוכה ורואה בשמחתה – Whoever mourns over J’lem, will merit to see her in her redemption (lit. gladness) (Taanis 30b). 

May we appreciate what we have lost, mourn for her destruction, repair the damage that we have wrought, and be zocheh to see Yerushalayim b’vin’yanah (J’lem rebuilt), speedily and in our days, amen.
