I read Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz’s article “Ask Why We Mourn on Tisha B’av” (July 28 issue of Jewish News) and was greatly disturbed.

Yanklowitz labels the Phoenix Jewish community as “divisive and fractured” and a “broken, failed, tragic story” and conveys his point with unsubstantiated rhetoric. He indicts specific local communal factions by rhetorically criticizing the Orthodox and pluralistic groups of rabbis for not talking or collaborating with one another.
