Today is Tisha B'Av

It is a fast day and a sad day for the Jewish people.

You can read more about it at Judaism 101 website.

It is a bit extra sad for me this year.  A rabbi friend of ours (Ben Shorr) was taken by the Israeli police and beaten. They did not say why, he says. Now he's out on bail, but needs to get bail money before they send him back.

They have been cracking down on rabbis recently.

What is happening...

CY,

Ben Shore's in Kiryat Arba, I think.

The Rabbi Lior incident (he got arrested about a month ago) was in J'lem.
