Hundreds Gather in Susiya to Discuss Holy Temple


As Jews around the world mark the fast of Tisha B’Av, hundreds gathered Monday night at the ancient synagogue in the community of Susiya, south of Mount Hevron, for a discussion about the significance of the Holy Temple.

The synagogue in Susiya served as a Jewish gathering place after the Temple was destroyed.

Yehoshua Rosenfeld, Director of Education at Mount Hevron, said, "This is another way to connect. To gather in this special place, on this evening, creating a completely different experience for our youth."
