An Experiential Approach to Tisha B’Av: Action Leads to Feeling

Tisha B’Av is parallel to the avelut period of personal mourning, but in an inverse way. In both cases, our actions create emotional states. Similarly, by practicing actions that reflect our guiding values, even if they don’t reflect our current feelings, we can work to create a society with a sense of justice and ethical propriety.
