Tisha B'Av and Jewish Ties To Jerusalem

Jlem Today's the 9th of Av, which on the Hebrew calendar marks the anniversary of the destruction of the first and second Temples. It's a day of fasting, and for many Israelis, a day off work too.

In a tangential way, the 9th of Av also highlights Jewish ties to the holy city, so in that vein, here are three links about Jersualem from the blog archives. They're just as relevant today as when I first wrote them.

Jerusalem Stories

Tel Aviv and AFP's Lousy Synecdoche

MSM and the Palestinian Rumor Mill

Last but not least, test your knowledge with the JCPA's Jerusalem quiz.

I'll resume blogging tomorrow.
