Why we still fast on Tisha B’Av

Tisha B'av

  • tesyaa

    The real reason we fast is because we feel guilty if we don’t. (Those who don’t fast have evolved beyond this kind of guilt…)

      Yea this is my first year I plan on not fasting, as much as I may want our historic bbq stand to return.

      I guess it’s kind of like eating corn on Pesach.

    Hey, at least we don’t throw stones at each other’s synagogues–at least not yet!

    • A. Nuran

      Synagogues, maybe not. But there’s been plenty of stones thrown at cars and people

      • Dan

        yeah, what’s the point of throwing stones at synogogues. Walls don’t bleed.
