Three Weeks of Mourning for the Holy Temple

The First and Second Holy Temples were both destroyed on the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Menachem Av (three weeks from the 17th of Tammuz when the invaders breached the wall of Jerusalem, which this year is July 1, 20’18). The preceding three weeks are a period during which Jews mourn this loss, and fervently pray for the Third Temple that will be established by the Messiah from the dynasty of King David, speedily in our days. Recording time 2:43.
