What is Tisha B’Av, and why should you care?

One of those mysterious verses for those who did not grow up Jewish is this one from Zechariah:

Thus says the Lord of hosts, “The fast of the fourth, the fast of the fifth, the fast of the seventh and the fast of the tenth months will become joy, gladness, and cheerful feasts for the house of Judah; so love truth and peace.” (Zechariah 8:19 NASB)

We know from Torah that the fast of the seventh month is Yom Kippur, but what are the others? In this show, we talk about two of them: the 17th of Tammuz (Fast of the Fourth Month), and the 9th of Av (Fast of the Fifth Month). Those dates mark the three-week period known as the Dire Straits, when disastrous things have happened to the Jewish people and the entire nation of Israel throughout history. Such things include the sin of the Golden Calf at Mount Sinai, the destruction of both Temples, the onset of the Holocaust, the expulsion of Jews from many nations, and more. (The Fast of the Tenth Month is Asara B’Tevet, which commemorates the beginning of the siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar.)

Something very significant has happened during the Dire Straits this year: the Temple Mount has become the center of a controversy that threatens the security of Israel and the status quo in the Middle East. That’s why we asked three men who know the situation well to share their thoughts about it.

  • Mikell Clayton of Joined to Hashem is filling in for Al as Daniel’s co-host on this show. He is intimately acquainted with the Land and people of Israel, thanks to his many years of travel there and his extensive contacts in the Land.
  • Hanoch Young of Kol Yehuda brings his perspective as an Israeli and as a Jewish voice who has labored for nearly a quarter century in awakening the people of Ephraim to their identity.
  • Barry Phillips of House of David Beit Midrash in Gloucester, VA and of B’ney Yosef North America has labored for many years to reach the remnant of Israel and see it restored.

In this very special program, you will hear the passion of these brothers in seeing all of Israel restored as God has promised throughout His word. Here also we say farewell to Daniel, who is leaving the show as the Lord leads him to a new assignment.
