TISHA B'AV is the anniversary and commemoration of the destruction of Jerusalem thousands of years ago.

It's an annual day of mourning to remember the Jewish people's loss of their eternal spiritual and political capital.

And while the Jewish people have returned to Israel and have returned to Jerusalem, it still has not yet achieved its ultimate place and purpose. 

And that's why we continue to commemorate Tisha B'Av, making a perfect day to focus on the history and significance of one of the world's most unique and important cities.

Join me this Thurday, July 27th as we:

Visit the Old City of Jerusalem and City of David to learn about Jerusalem's ancient historical roots.

Understand the historical and religious significance of the Western Wall.

Learn about the modern battle for Jerusalem during the Six Day War and explore the significance of Israel regaining control of the Western Wall in 1967.
