The Ninth Day of Av (Tisha' Be'Av) 5769

Napoleon was walking at night in the streets of Paris, hearing sad voices emanating from a synagogue. When told that the wailing/lamenting commemorated a 586 BCE catastrophe, he stated: “Any People which solemnizes its ancient history is destined for a glorious future!”

Memory is deliverance; Forgetfulness is oblivion.
