Vatochalna Noshim Piryam, we will soon mournfully say on Tisha B’av. How in the world can a loving mother eat her precious child, what greater love in the world is their than a mother to her offspring? In the time of the Churban, it was a most terrifying and horrifying situation that brought about such tragic results.
I was shocked to realize that this is actually going on in our day and age, right here in our backyard.
The Gemora says that it is worse to make someone sin than to kill them. Think about that, killing isn’t as bad as making someone do an Aveira!
Have you ever noticed in many of the popular local stores there are movies for sale and rent? Would you buy or rent movies while your shopping with your sweet and precious Cheder Yinglach, whom you Bentch and Daven for that they grow up to be as great as Moshe Rabeinu? I was in (moderated) today and witnessed just such a scene. For shame!
I am not on the Madreiga to give a stranger, especially a strange woman Tochacha. But let’s be real, if a “Heimish” translate at will, woman can shamelessly be renting movies in a store full of Frumme Yidden, it means that our collective shame is gone or its becoming socially acceptable. Either way, this is a new low in Kedushas Hamachane.
