Kabbalists teach that the gift of Tisha B'Av, the 9th of Av, is understanding that there is never darkness.
The Ninth of Av is the one day of the year when the negative force kabbalists call the Opponent rules for an entire 24 hour period. The Opponent is not a demon or devil, but a negative force of consciousness whose sole nature is receiving, chaos and selfishness. Many chaotic events have occurred on this day throughout history, but through prayer, reading the biblical scroll of Lamentations and additional kabbalistic tools, we can uproot this force of negativity and transform it to positivity.On the Ninth of Av, 2020, Karen Berg passed on from this world.
