After the Crash

July 22nd, 2017 — Shabbat Matot-Masei

Rabbi Nate DeGroot

Out of the rubble of Tisha b’Av, we are told, the moshiach is born. Yes, the commemoration of Tisha b’Av, and the experience of any crash moment, presents us with a chance to mourn what’s lost. But if it ends there, we might just be missing the whole point: Will we deny the crash? Run away from it? Or will we embrace with vigor and vision and joy, the opportunity for a serious rebuild?
