The Three Weeks - Mourning the Loss of the Beis Hamikdash
A sad time that is supposed to bring us up! There is more to the Three Weeks than fasting and lamentation. Our sages tell us that those who mourn the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash will be zoche to seeing it rebuilt with the coming of Moshiach.
May that day come soon, and then all the mournful dates on the calendar will be transformed into days of tremendous joy and happiness!
