In partnership with Aleph Beta.
The 17th of Tammuz is the tragic start to the Three Weeks, a period of intense mourning that culminates with Tisha B’av – the day the Temple was destroyed. And if that’s not enough, the Mishna lists even more calamities that took place on the 17th of Tammuz. Is it just a coincidence that all these terrible moments happened on the same day? Is the 17th of Tammuz just the Israelites’ bad luck day, or is there a common theme that runs throughout the events of this day?
Join Aleph Beta as we explore this tragic day in Jewish History and discover how these past events can have significant implications on our lives today.
