This past Friday was the start of the 9 days leading up to Tishah B’av, the day when we mourn over our loss of the Beis HaMikdash (the Temple). This week’s activities will be slightly different, starting off with today’s activity:

Why not offer your mom (or someone you’re friendly with in the neighborhood) to help take care of their kids so that they can take a little break? *Make sure to ask your parents before going to someone else’s home*

I hope that this week’s activities will help bring mashiach closer and that we will not have to mourn for the Beis HaMikdash this Tishah B’av, rather we will be celebrating at the third Beis Hamikdash in Yerushalayim.
