Tisha B'av Video

to Dan Smith: have you ever heard of envy? The Arabs want the Jews out wherever they are and whatever they do!

Thank you Aish for this powerful inspirational video.

Redemption will bring global peace

Dan Smith, as Jews we believe that along with the rebuilding of the temple will also come world peace. The sages teach us in the Talmud that the temple actually brings about and inspires peace. The temple and peace are not a contradiction, but rather the temple bring unification and peace.
