Tisha B'Av Events Around Jerusalem
The fast of Tisha B'Av is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, marking the loss of Israel's sovereignty and its holy Temple in 70 AD, as well as numerous other tragedies that befell Jewish communities throughout history. This year, Tisha B'Av is Nidche, pushed off from shabbat and commemorated on Sunday, the 10th of Av. In shul, we'll read from the book of Eicha at night, and say kinot during the morning. For those looking for a bit more to engage with the mood of the day, here are some events organized around Jerusalem: Saturday Night: 25th Annual Tisha beAv Eve Walk around the Old City Walls
GOOD MORNING! A soon to be married young man asked me what I thought were the keys to marital happiness. I thought for a bit and reflected on many of the marriages I have observed and then responded:
___"Rule #1 - Have no expectations. Expectations are the source of virtually all misery. Almost every young groom believes that there hasn't been a woman like he's marrying since Adam met Eve. It is hard to live up to an image on a pedestal.
___"Rule #2 -- Always focus on your own responsibilities and what you can do for your spouse - not on your spouse's responsibilities and what you think your spouse should be doing for you. If you see a tissue on the floor or dirty laundry, pick it up; if you don't, then you are leaving it for your spouse.
___"Rule #3 - Appreciate whatever your spouse does and express your appreciation both to your spouse and to the Almighty. Be sincere and frequent in your praise.
___"Rule #4 - Be totally committed to your spouse and to the marriage. Your number 1 responsibility is to make it work. Too many people have one foot out the door or fantasize about 'maybe I should have married someone else I dated.' A couple mentioned to me that he was awarded a prize on a recent cruise for the longest marriage amongst the passengers. People asked him, "How did you stay married so many years to the same woman? the man replied, 'When we got married we tied the knot with a square knot, not a slip knot.' "

Era of the fax officially ends Law requiring public bodies to accept emails instead of faxes goes into effect.
Israel's Fax Law will go into effect on Friday, one year after it was approved by the Knesset, Israel Hayom reported.
The law, initiated by Likud MKs Sharren Haskel and David Bitan, requires government ministries and public bodies such as hospitals, the National Insurance Institute, health funds, and others, to allow the public to contact them via email instead of via fax.
"It's time to move forward and accommodate today's technology," Haskel said. "This is 2019. Everyone works with email. Faxes are a thing of the past."
The new law means "an end to the bureaucratic excuse that 'we didn't receive your fax,'" she added.
Three rabbis were talking about life and death
when the question came up: "When you're in your casket, and friends and congregants are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?"
The first rabbi said: "I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader and a great family man."
The second commented: "I would like them to say I was a wonderful teacher and servant of G‑d who made a huge difference in people's lives."
The third rabbi thought for a moment and remarked: "I'd like them to say, 'Look, he's moving!'"

In The Origin of Speeches (Amazon or Lightcatcher Books) there is a far more detailed discussion than these short posts.
If there is no Creator behind the miracle of language then the accidentally-evolved humans developed the word Mayim (water), and then made a glyph of the M sound with curvy lines depicting waves.
IF there IS a Creator behind the miracle of language, the מ Mem, like the ב Bet and פ Pey graphically depict 2 lips forming these sounds. The Creator of speech hardware is the Creator of speech softwear. Humans are given the will and brains to explore the worlds of Hebrew words and Hebrew Revelation or to continue reading news of celebrities. We have the ability to tune into our angelic soul, our Better Half, or to live and die like an animal.
