    Second Topic – Aug. 11, 70: Destruction of the Jerusalem Temple

    On this day in the year 70, Roman troops, sent by Emperor Vespasian to put down a Jewish rebellion, break through the walls of Jerusalem and destroyed the temple. Some said that the event occurred on the same day of the year as the earlier destruction of Solomon's temple by Babylonians. We talk with Roy Schoeman about the significance of this event for the Jewish people.
