Hi, My name is Menachem and i live in Tzfat,Israel.Last year on Tisha ba’av i started a topic on The YWN Coffee Room bashing “mainstream yeshivish judaism” America…after that i did that i never returned.I dont know if any of you remember it or were here for it but it was totally uncalled for.i hope that you guy can forgive me and may we all merit to see the Moshiach today.Peace.Easy and meaningful fast.
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov says that ikkar of a fast is not the fast itself but how you break the fast.
What does that mean how you break the fast?
It sounds like perhaps what meaning you got out of it..
or perhaps some kind of Tshuva to make moshiach come faster..
It should stay with you throughout the year.. not just Tisha b’Av.
just my thought..
I think it means dont come home and start eating like an animal…appreciation,kavvanah,learn a mishanah before.Peace.
