This coming weekend begins the saddest part of the Jewish calendar. Occurring across a three week period, between the 17th of Tammuz and the 9th of Av, this time period has held the most terrible tragedies for the Jewish nation.
What were those tragedies? What’s the history behind these ominous days? What’s the message for us nowadays? What are the practical laws (halachahs) that apply during this time?
In this episode, I provide a broad overview of this time period: beginning with the history, then the deeper meaning and concluding with the relevant laws.
