Laws and Customs

During the Three Weeks, from 17th of Tamuz to the 9th of Av, we commemorate the conquest of Jerusalem, the destruction of the Holy Temple and the dispersion of the Jewish people.

Weddings and other joyful events are not held during this period; like mourners, we do not cut our hair, and various pleasurable activities are limited or proscribed. (The particular mourning customs vary from community to community, so consult a competent halachic authority for details.)

Citing the verse (Isaiah 1:27) "Zion shall be redeemed with mishpat [Torah] and its returnees with tzedakah," the Rebbe urged that we increase in Torah study (particularly the study of the laws of the Holy Temple) and charity during this period.

Daily Thought

Sadness is not a crime. But it plummets a person into an abyss deeper than any crime could reach.

Sadness and despair is a ploy instigated by the self-destructive elements within all of us. Once depressed, a person could do anything.

Fight despair as a blood sworn enemy. Run from it as you would run from death itself.
