On tisha b’av we remember the ways that turning away from the Holy One and each other led to the destruction of the first and second temples. I am reminded of a visit with my friend and mentor julie portman toward the end of her journey with cancer. When i asked what she had learned from the experience, she said “love heals.” MAY WE REMEMBER that we can heal and transform our past, present and future by choosing love. MAY WE BE BLESSED with the courage to choose love in every moment.
