Tisha B'Av as the Jewish Nakba
Engaging Palestinians in dialogue about memory, destruction and repentance is consistent with the spirit of Tisha B'Av.
Before there was the Nakba, there was Tisha B'Av. Palestinians may believe they have the monopoly on mourning the loss of their homeland, but we beat them to the punch by 2,534 years. In the competition of who was there first, the Jews win once again.
