It’s in Our Hands

On the Tenth of Teves in the year 425 BCE, Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, laid siege around the holy city of Jerusalem. The siege lasted over two years, eventually culminating in the breach of the city’s walls and the destruction of the Holy Temple with all the calamities that followed. But in fact, this wasn’t the first time the holy city was besieged. Years earlier, Sennacherib, king of Assyria, led a massive army against the Jews and intended to penetrate Jerusalem’s walls. But that time, it ended very differently.
