by Rabbi Yosef Shusterman

Shivah Asar B'Tammuz starts the 3 weeks of mourning for the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash (Temple in Jerusalem). This is the time where the walls of Yerushalayim were broken through until the 9th of Av when the temple was burnt down. These series of classes discuss the historic facts of Shivah Asar B'Tammuz and the 3 weeks and the halachos and laws that pertain to these days.
