Our rabbis taught that one of the reasons for the destruction of the Temple was “sinat hinam,” senseless hatred amongst Jews.  Our rabbis also taught that the Messiah will be born on Tisha B’Av—suggesting that out of this destruction, there is also the potential of redemption, and reconciliation.
It is traditional on Tisha B’Av to refrain from eating, drinking, engaging in sexual relations, bathing and wearing leather shoes.  The study of religious texts is limited to those which enhance and reflect the day’s mood such as the books of Lamentations and Job and other texts referring to the destruction of Jerusalem.  Going to work, using money, driving and other  restrictions applicable to Shabbat and festivals are not applicable to Tisha B’Av.

Presented by Israeli American Council, hosted by CBS.

Since the days of King David, the Jewish people never had an artist like Naomi Shemer whose music was sung by so many and had such a vast and dramatic effect and influence on the Jewish and Israeli narrative.

Over 1,000 songs were written and composed by Shemer. Many of which tell the story of the State of Israel—from its birth through today, in happy times and sad. Her work is still very much ‘alive’ and cherished by all.  Naomi Shemer belongs to everyone, in the Jewish State and across the world.

Roy Rimshon, a self-confessed Naomi Shemer enthusiast, brings light and life to Shemer’s story. From her childhood in Kibbutz Kinneret through adolescence, from her musical education and early songs to becoming a living legend, Shemer’s life is a colorful narrative. Rimshon’s lectures combine well-known songs, videos and rare pictures, unfolding the life and work of this most influential and loved artist of the State of Israel.
