9 'Av 5766 * 3 August 2006: The Fast of 'Av

I am posting today, the saddest of all fast days on the Jewish calendar, because R. Ari Sytner, rabbi of our local shul, sent out E-mail about an initiative called “Pray for One” which gives people in the US names of endangered people in Israel to pray for. This struck me as a good idea, if for no other reason than people's morale can be raised by the knowledge that someone is praying for them. You can find out about this initiative (and other worthwhile things to do) at Israel Under Siege - What You Can Do. Thank you.
