TikTok and Tisha b'Av

Friday, 5 August, 2022 - 7:24 am

"#thattiktokrabbi" will G-d willing be joining us this Shabbos, the 9th of Av, the day we mourn the destruction of the Beit Hamikdash.

TikTok is a social media platform which revolves around short video clips. 

When I think about social media, I see it as a place that can be used to share inspiring Jewish values and messages or a place that can be filled with hate and vitriol.

The reason the Holy Temple was destroyed was because of unfounded hatred. The way we will rebuild the third temple is by unfounded acceptance and love. 

That person you see on social media who made a stupid comment, judge them favorably. Maybe they are just having a bad day or perhaps they weren't educated. If you see something you can help with, help. 

Why? You don't need a reason. Just because.

Perhaps that will be that last act of goodness to tip the scales and redeem the entire world to the messianic age. 

Tik Tok* is (or at least should be) a platform where people share short inspirational videos. Let’s bring Moshiach, even before Tisha b'Av, by doing small little things to make the world a brighter place.


P.S. come Shabbos for services at 10 AM followed by kiddush and hang with us and the tik tok Rabbi :)

*and every social media platform
