this video Rabbi Gordon- I can't tell you how much I enjoyed watching every single word of this presentation today, TishaB'av. So fascinating. Was able print out much of the engish translation and follow your explanations. B"H yom yom for the internet to make this possible, wherever one is (I was in my kiichen baking a banana cake!) and your enormous talent to share this learning. Reply

Titus vs. Hashem I thought Titus thought that he killed G-d? Why was he worried about drowning? Reply

When the Destruction Happened? According to the calculations brought in Maimonides' introduction to the book YAD HACHAZAKAH, it's been 1941 years that the Holy Temple was destroyed and also hopefully we will witness very soon the construction of the Third Holy Temple speedily in our days Amen!!

The Bar Kochva Revolt chronology Jerusalem was destoyed in the year 70 CE and the Bar Kochva revolt was 132-136 CE -- about 60-65 years later. Reply

The Destruction of the Temple I really enjoyed listening to your teaching, and listening to the story of Kamza and bar Kamza.
Is that the same era as Bar Kochva and Rabbi Akiva?

Thank you Reply
