This Tisha B'Av was especially poignant. For we weep and fast this year together with more than a billion Muslims, who are fasting in this month of Ramadan.
The integrity of our temples is guaranteed not by their walls, the armies that guard them, or the rituals performed within, but by the way in which we treat both those who worship in them and those who don't.
How do we mourn a personal loss? How does a nation mourn a national tragedy? How much is enough? How much is too much? How does mourning help us to move on - to move back into life?
