In the past, we have written all about infographics (see here and here for example) and have even amassed a large collection of Jewish infographics (here and here)!
Nowadays, it seems that everywhere you turn there’s an infographic presenting information to the masses. People love infographics because they easily convey information in a visual way—and best of all, infographics can go viral and increase awareness of a cause, organization, or campaign.
However, there are not many Jewish infographics—and certainly not one that explain to the scholar and layperson all about Tisha B’Av and why we are fasting and mourning…until now.
Thankfully, we just received word that NCSY created a Tisha B’Av infographic for their NCSY Education website.
This infographic outlines the basics of Tisha B’Av: What happened on Tisha B’Av? How do we mourn? Why are we still mourning?
You can now download the infographic for free here (as a PDF as well) and share it with congregants and students so that they can print out this sheet and use it to better understand and appreciate Tisha B’Av.
We encourage you to use this infographic on social media or share it via email to help anyone quickly learn or review the significance of Tisha B’Av.
Have you come across anything new online, in a sefer or a new video that can help rabbis and educators around the globe better teach their congregants and students about Tisha B’Av? Please let us know in the comments section below.
