On the 9th day of Av, we mourn tragedies and loss that have befallen the Jewish people at this time of year, including the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem. Additionally, we are reminded of the many tragedies of the pandemic, racial injustice and systemic inequality that have befallen our communities.

Think about a loss in your own life. How has it helped you build resilience as an individual?
