Rabbi Yochanan Bechhofer, who hosts a popular parsha shiur on OU Torah, is presenting a 16-part OU Holidays series on The Three Weeks. As of this writing, the first five shiurim have been posted:
1. Why Is It Divorce?
2. The Triple Blessing of the Holy Land
3. Kamtza & Bar Kamtza
4. Jerusalem vs. Sinat Chinam
5. Jerusalem, the International City
A similar series of shiurim by Rabbi Bechhofer on Pesach was extremely well-received. So get in on the ground floor with these brief lectures, guaranteed to enlighten your understanding of the Three Weeks – and check back on OU Holidays from now until Tisha b’Av to catch the rest of the series as it becomes available!
Also… remember to register for the OU’s Tisha b’Av webcast featuring Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb from the OU Israel Center in Jerusalem and Rabbi Steven Weil from the Boca Raton Synagogue!
