Bringing Redemption Through Unity

A series of events – to promote unity in the Jewish community 

The Month of Av is greeted with a sense of sadness and mourning. The devastating impact of the destruction of the Second Temple, the Beit HaMikdash, on the 9th of Av, and the subsequent exile of the Jewish people, fundamentally changed the world for the next two thousands years. The root cause of this exile for the Jewish people came about because of divisions between Jews.

It is our intention as we enter Av, to lessen that sense of loss – with a sense of purpose and unity. Unity doesn’t have to mean that we all agree on everything – rather that find common purpose and work together to make our world more Godly, and repair what is broken.

When the Jewish people are united we create spiritual protection of ourselves, and hasten the Redemption. 

We hope that you will be able to join us in bringing more unity to the Jewish world! See below for details!
