Tonight the House Burns

Tonight begins the fast of the ninth of the month of Av, the anniversary of the destruction of both of our Holy Temples in Jerusalem. For some reason, despite the fact that our observances put us in a mood of mourning for the three weeks leading up to the fast, I often am not hit by the scope of the tragedy until the day of this fast, and for a few days afterward.
