AskFOI— What happened on Tisha B’Av, and why do the Jewish people mourn? (@11:47)

“Tisha B’Av, or the 9th of the month of Av, is a day of mourning and sadness for the Jewish people. And the reason being… is that they believe that on this date both Solomon’s Temple and the second temple, Herod’s Temple were both destroyed. Tradition says Solomon’s Temple, the first Jewish temple in Jerusalem, was destroyed on the 9th of Av in 586 BC. And Herod’s Temple, the Temple that stood during the days of Jesus, was destroyed on the 9th of Av by the Romans in 70 AD.

Apples of Gold–”The Lord will never reject you.” (@18:42)

“Near me lives a happy couple in their early 60s. I have visited them often, and the husband always talks about world problems. Recently, I tried to speak about the Bible, but he said, “I do not like to speak about it.”

I told him, “Today you are here, but tomorrow you may lose your life. I do not mean only the body, but you may also lose the most important thing, your soul.”


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
