Ubiquitin: I agree with what you say. However, the main avodah of Tisha B’Av is aveilus. For instance, it is ossur to say hello to another Jew on Tisha B’Av. If the avodah of the day is fixing sinas chinam, we should going around saying hello to all Jews. Yes, we must fix sinas chinam, but we have the rest of the year for that. Tisha B’Av is when we focus on what we are missing — the Bais Hamikdash. If we truly felt the loss, then, after Tisha B’Av we can start working on the sinas chinam.

Firefox has an add-on called, “image show-hide.” With one press of a button, it hides ALL the images on that page. If the button is pressed again, the images all reappear. It is very helpful when you suddenly encounter a page with bad pictures; you can quickly hit that button and save your neshama.July 4, 2011 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm in reply to: Eidah Chareidis Chulent Ban – a question of hechsherim #783051
