For Those of You Who Have Missed Music for the Past Nine Days

I haven’t listened to music for the past nine days, as is customary for observant Jews who mourn for the destruction of the Temple. From the first through the ninth (and part of the tenth) of the Hebrew month of Av, we refrain from listening to music, eating meat or drinking wine (except for the Sabbath), and swimming for pleasure. The ninth of Av is a 24 hour fast day – starting tonight at sundown and lasting until tomorrow night.

The following video is for your listening pleasure, to celebrate music coming back to our lives…. (some of you will need to wait until Friday…)
