Tu B’Av / The Power of Comfort

The cycle of moving from darkness to light is expressed on this Shabbat, the Shabbat after the ninth of Av, the fast which commemorates the tragedy of the destruction of both the first and second Temples in Jerusalem.

The sages tell us that the fifteenth of every Jewish month is significant, because, in accordance with the lunar calendar, on that day the moon is full. The moon represents the Jewish people, and also the Divine Presence, the Shechinah, which has a feminine quality. The fifteenth of Av has a special power of joy, above that of the fifteenth of all other months, because the descent on the ninth of Av was so terrible. The light and joy which follows darkness have an added, unique power.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe points out that this idea can help us even if we are still at the stage of the descent into darkness. The darkness and desolation are not a cause for despair: on the contrary, they point to the greater joy which will follow. The greater the darkness, the greater the light and the joy which will follow. Recognizing this truth inherent in existence enables us to find joy at the darkest moment. This teaching applies to us as individual men and women, and also to the Jewish people as a whole.
