Topics: Pardes Live and Mini-Series, Tisha B'av, The Three Weeks

In this, Rabbi Mike Feuer’s final installment for the Three Weeks, he looks into the question of feasting or fasting on Tisha B’Av. One might think that whether to fast on Tisha b’Av is a new question, but the prophet Zechariah teaches us otherwise. Nevertheless, who would think of feasting?

This podcast was originally published on Sulam Yaakov Sounds.
