Yom-HaKippurim and Tisha B'Av: The Commonality of Opposites

By Shaul Magid

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), September 2009

The author compares and contrasts Tisha B'Av and Yom Kippur, the two complete (25-hour) fast days of the Jewish year. He illustrates how certain commonalities, and other differences, point toward the nature of these two holidays as mirrors and opposites of one another.
