Do you ever take road trips? Do you notice how you are forever looking at the road signs that say "987 miles to Anywhere, USA"? Or, "next rest area 254 miles"?

The "Road Trip" is the journey of life, with all its valleys and hills, bumpy and smooth roads, and exciting and occasionally not so exciting attractions along the way. The "Road Signs" are the Jewish holidays. Some of the holidays let us know that we need to slow down and look inside ourselves. Perhaps we went the wrong way and need to make a U-Turn. At times we need to just speed up, and just maybe our destination is at hand and its time to rejoice.

With the unique spirituality of Chabad philosophy, the holiday experience with Chabad of Harford County is unique and enjoyable. Always informative, always spiritual and always an energizing experience.

Wishing you a safe and meaningful journey.

The 9th of Av, Tisha b'Av, commemorates a list of catastrophes so severe it's clearly a day specially cursed by G‑d.

As part of our mourning for the destruction of the Temple and the exile of Israel, we abstain from many pleasurable activities on the night and day of Av 9—starting with sundown on the eve of the day before, and concluding with the following nightfall
