We All Turn Toward the Temple

Tisha B'Av

When the Temple was destroyed, the Jewish people no longer had a central place to gather and to worship God through giving sacrifices or gifts. Instead, they built synagogues in their own communities and had to find new ways to worship God. The rabbis invented a new way to be close to God, replacing the sacrifices or gift-giving of the Temple, with some of the same prayers we pray today.
