  1. what a tragedy to occur in the 9 days
    R”L WE Have had so much tzaros recently-in all different categories & sadness-but have still not changed our ways to return to Hashem so that tzaros can end & mashiach comes.
    WE CAUSED IT TO HAPPEN & COULDV’E PREVENTED IT had we faced reality & begged hashem to forgive us for our arrogance in ignoring his wake-up calls for teshuva

    may her neshma have an aliyah, may we all return to Hashem ASAP & may mashiach arrive before this tisha b’av
