The Three Weeks? The Nine Days? Tisha B'Av? For the average dude, they're a pain; rabbis tell him that he can't drink wine, eat a steak, play golf, go to the beach or get a haircut. OK, he'll remodel his home. His rabbi tells him he can't do that either. Most people see the fast of Tisha B'Av as a dread - the day seems endless and depressing. Why? Does it have to be that way? Today's lesson will prepare us for a much more meaningful Tisha B'Av. Enjoy and have a wonderful new week and may we all hear good news from each other, amen!
