    R’ Adlerstein,

    Beautiful, moving post, very apropos before Tisha B’av.

    While it may be difficult for many of us to cry over the pain of one broken Neshamah (as well as the pain of the destroyed Bais Hamikdash), it should not be difficult to cry over the pain suffered daily by the thousands of refugees from Gush Katif. The constant daily suffering of our dear Brothers is beyond comprehension and beyond description.

    May Hashem speedily punish those responsible for their plight, and bring a Geulah for them and the rest of Klal Yisroel.

    your comments are most fitting and timely.

    my only wish is that these sentiments would be better reflected in our shuls and in our attendence at the various asifos being organized on behalf of gilad.pidyon shivuyim is a mitzvah that deserves our urgent attention.

    this should be reflected with the recitation of tehilim in all our botai midrashim,our day camps,and in all our sleep away camps. a mi-shebairach for zahal and gilad should be mandated by the rabbonim,and observed with the dignity it deserves.after all, we are asking hashem for help.

    I agree with this. In the euphoria following the 1967 victory, one Rabbi wondered for what reason we need to mourn for on Tisha B’av, and couldn’t bring himself to say Kinnos. Even recently, I remember hearing schmeusen about why we have to mourn. However, that changed after the current intifada. Also, last year, Tisha B’av felt especially real, as I heard live brodcasts from Gush Katif, from towns which were about to be evacuated.

    In the zechus of mourning the Beis Hamikdash, may we merit the Geulah this year!
