The Ninth of Av is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar. But how do we personally connect to the loss of our Holy Temple that occurred thousands of years ago? How do we appreciate what we are missing in our lives today?

Aish.com’s Tisha B’Av compendium is a 22-page collection of thought-provoking articles gleaned from the site, easy to print and read throughout the day. We hope the inspiration and insight found within its pages brings an additional dimension of meaning to the fast day. May we merit to see the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple, united in the Holy Land as one nation with one heart.
