Read Tisha B'Av As a Novelette

A new historical novelette by Levi Liberow tells the story of the destruction of the Second Beit Hamikdash from an untold angle.

Tisha b'Av is rapidly approaching and with it, the combination of the most horrific yet most encouraging events of all times.

We know indeed, that when Moshiach comes, Tisha B'av will not only cease to be a fast, it will actually become a Yom-Tov!

The reason is, as the Gemara and Midrash teach, that at the same time as the Beis Hamikdash was going up in flames, Moshiach was born.

The Rebbe explains that as we approach the Geulah, we must focus more on the hope than on the mourning.

To heed the Rebbe's call, Principles Magazine has just released "The Boy in Purple" - a historical novelette by Levi Liberow that tells the story of Tisha b'Av from a refreshing and more hopeful perspective.

The book tells the tale of Amos, a lone Jewish farmer in the deserts of Arabia, who, in a bizarre turn of events, learns of the destruction of the second Beit Hamikdash, and at the same time, is entrusted with a secret.

This secret takes him on an adventure spanning continents and countries; meeting sages and savages, mysterious Bedouin horsemen and simple housewives in search of a young and special child.

During the course of the trip, Amos and the other colorful characters, discover and learn through laughter and tears, that the end of an epoch is the beginning of a better one.

The 108-page novelette comes with notes, references and an appendix of the Midrashic source texts translated into English, as well as an overview of the contemporary commentaries on this Midrash; including the Rebbe's unique approach.

"The Boy in Purple" is sure to transform your Tisha b'Av experience and makes a great addition to any home or Chabad House library. With its unique compact size and appealing design and layout, "The Boy in Purple" is a perfect gift idea for summer camp staff members.

Available for purchase at select Jewish bookstores and online at hamazon.com. Contact boyinpurple@principlesmagazine.com for discounted bulk rates and special Shluchim and Mosdos prices.
