During the three weeks, we reflect upon the destruction of the Holy Temple, as well as all of the other incomprehensible losses of Jewish history. During this time, we do not listen to instrumental music. A notable exception was during the expulsion trek from Spain, when the rabbis ordered that music should be played to keep the streams of refugees in good spirits.

The song “Incomplete”, expresses well the sense of fresh loss. The lack of musical instrumentation accentuates the concept of incompleteness as well. The loss of fellow Jews to terrorism, to battle, and the loss of physical observance of commandments that came with the destruction of the Temple leave us feeling. . . . incomplete.

Empty, decrepit synagogues in Arab cities, left behind by fleeing Jews leave me feeling. . . “incomplete.”

Even attending a wedding and thinking of murdered relatives who should have lived to join in the celebration leaves me feeling. . . “incomplete”.

May G-d restore all that we lack.
