 Parshat V’aetchanan
What Happened on the Ninth of Av? On Tisha B'Av, five national calamities occurred: During the time of Moses, Jews in the desert accepted the slanderous report of the 10 Spies, and the decree was issued forbidding them from entering the Land of Israel. (1312 BCE) The First Temple was destroyed by the Babylonians, led by Nebuchadnezzar. 100,000 Jews were slaughtered and millions more exiled. (586 BCE) The Second Temple was destroyed by the Romans, led by Titus. Some two million Jews died, and another one million were exiled. (70 CE) The Bar Kochba revolt was crushed by Roman Emperor Hadrian. The city of Betar – the Jews' last stand against the Romans – was captured and liquidated. Over 100,000 Jews were slaughtered. (135 CE) The Temple area and its surroundings were plowed under by the Roman general Turnus Rufus. Jerusalem was rebuilt as a pagan city – renamed Aelia Capitolina – and access was forbidden to Jews. Other grave misfortunes throughout Jewish history occurred on the Ninth of Av, including: The Spanish Inquisition culminated with the expulsion of Jews from Spain on Tisha B'Av in 1492. World War One broke out on the eve of Tisha B'Av in 1914 when Germany declared war on Russia. German resentment from the war set the stage for the Holocaust. On the eve of Tisha B'Av 1942, the mass deportation began of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto, en route to Treblinka. Aspects of Mourning: The Afternoon Before Tisha B'Av During the afternoon prior to Tisha B'Av, it is customary to eat a full meal in preparation for the fast. At the end of the afternoon, we eat the Seudah Hamaf-seket – a meal consisting only of bread, water, and a hard-boiled egg. The egg has two symbols: The round shape reminds us of a sign of the cycle of life. Also, the egg is the only food which gets harder the more it is cooked – a symbol of the Jewish people's ability to withstand persecution. Food eaten at the Seudah Hamaf-seket is dipped in ashes, symbolic of mourning. The meal should preferably be

eaten alone, while seated on the ground in mourner's fashion. Restrictions on Tisha B'Av Upon sundown, the laws of Tisha B'Av commence – consisting of the following expressions of mourning: 1. No eating or drinking until nightfall the following evening. Pregnant and nursing women are also required to fast. If one suspects it could be harmful to the baby or mother, a rabbi should be consulted. A woman within 30 days after birth need not fast. Others who are old, weak, or ill should consult with a rabbi. (MB 554:11) Medicine may be taken on Tisha B'Av, preferably without water. In case of great discomfort, the mouth may be rinsed with water. Great care should be taken not to swallow anything. (MB 567:11) 2. Other prohibitions include: Any bathing or washing, except for removing specific dirt – e.g. gook in the eyes (OC 554:9, 11). (Upon rising in the morning, before prayers, or after using the bathroom, one washes only the fingers. See OC 554:10, OC 613:3, MB 554:26)

Israel in a Time of Terror 
Terror bombing after terror bombing, day after day. A sidewalk café becomes as dangerous as a military outpost. A simple trip to the supermarket becomes a horror of flying nails, glass and death. How do Israelis deal with this pervasive terror? How do they explain their near-solitude in the world or their real feel-ings towards Arabs? These are some of the questions asked in this film, weaving interviews with street footage from places of terror bringing you closer than news footage can ever make possible. It's as disturbing as it is important as a historical document of the turbulent present times.
3:30 – 5:15 pm Anita
(2009 w/ English subtitles)
 Anita (Alejandra Manzo) is a young woman with Down syndrome who lives a happy life in Buenos Aires, under the meticulous care of her mother Dora (Academy Award nominee Norma Aleandro). One tragic morning in 1994, everything changes when Anita is left alone, confused and helpless after the nearby Argentine Israelite Mutual Association is bombed (one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in Argentina's history). As  Anita wanders through the city, she learns not only to care for herself, but touches the lives of those around her.
