MTA’s Shacharis minyan was enhanced by the presence of RIETS Roshei Yeshiva Rav Hershel Schachter and Rav Herschel Reichman, who joined talmidim and rebbeim from all grades and helped set the tone for the fast. According to the Chasam Sofer, Asarah B’Teves, the day the siege on Yerushalayim was laid, was also the day that Hashem decided to destroy the Beis Hamikdash. He continues to explain that each year on Asarah B’Teves, the Heavenly court convenes and decides if the Beis Hamikdash will be rebuilt. May all of our tefillos be answered and may we be zoche for the Beis Hamikdash to be rebuilt b’meheira v’yameinu.
