Tisha Be'av: Breaking rocks in Jerusalem

For Shivi Froman, who will be taking part in a Tisha Be’av program in the City of David, the Temple is more of a spiritual than a physical concept.

Shivi Froman tries to keep things in balance. That’s what the thirtysomething educator hopes to achieve when he participates in the Tisha Be’av program “How the Rocks Break” in Jerusalem’s Old City next week.

“The whole thing will take place in Section G of the archeological excavations at the City of David, where, as far as I understand, there is the greatest number of archeological strata,” notes Froman, who serves as an assistant to Education Minister Shai Piron.
