What a brilliant article!!!! Here in SA (and reprehensibly) only a minority of the rabbis attend Yom hashoa services. If they would respect the recent dead, I would mourn the ancient destruction out of respect for the old traditions. However until such time: because the state exists; because the exile is over; and given that the temple’s non-rebuilding is the will of the sovereign Jewish state, I will open a bottle of my best on Tisha B Av to celebrate the end of exile.
