The Fast of the 17th of Tammuz

A recorded message from Rav Cherki about the fast of the 17th of Tammuz.

The fast of the 17th of Tammuz occurred this year on July 15. The five tragic events listed in the Talmud as having happened on this day can be seen as representing concentric circles, each one at a greater distance from the center of holiness. We pray that with Divine guidance we will be privileged to rebuild what we have lost.
