14 Av — Seek And You Will Find

It was on this day, in the year 636, that Arab armies wrested control of the Holy Land from the Byzantines. It’s interesting that all three monotheistic religions have lost control of the Holy Land in the Hebrew month called Av. Judaism lost control on the 9th of Av....
