Today Israel is mourning. Why? Because the first and second temples were destroyed on this day. Not only that, but hundreds of other horrific crimes were committed against the Jewish people, all on this day.
The 9th of Av is one of four fast days mentioned in Zechariah 8:19. However, it is clear that one day these fasts will be turned into days of joy and gladness.
Joshua and Luke share their experiences of ascending to the Temple Mount on this special day along with Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Ari Abramowitz, and hundreds of other Jews. Remarkably, in what can only be the beginnings of restoration, prayer is now allowed on the Temple Mount!
