R' Shimshon Raphael Hirsch on Jewish Days of Mourning, Part 2


[continued from yesterday's post]

"For the fathers of our people understood profoundly that the fall of the people was not the pathway to the grave. It but changed the scene for Israel's activity, summoning it to new obligations, or, rather, to another aspect of that same fulfilment of its way of living which was its 'vocation' in times of prosperity."

(R' Samson Raphael Hirsch, Horeb, paragraph 234)

Have a good day,
