Tishah b’Av from Within, a prayer-poem by Todd Greenberg


Contribute a translationSource (English)
within the broken walls of the temple lives
the history of the destructions
honor, remember, mourn
we will most likely not
build that third temple for the
re-building now is from within
deconstruct your temples,
the ones that don’t work
honor, remember, mourn
reconstructing the self
build the internal tabernacle
that cannot be taken away
help others to build their own
temples, there own relationship
with the Infinite
listen to your Torah
resurrection and
new beginnings will come
