Failure to mourn for Jerusalem


[This follows up on Saturday night's email, here.]

"When the body is separate from the heart which [normally] supports it, the body cannot survive. Therefore, when they did not mourn Jerusalem which was like a heart for a body… they were destroyed."

(Maharal to Gittin 56a)
