Three Weeks

Q. What are the Three Weeks? [Sara aged 10]

A. The Three Weeks are a sad period in the Jewish calendar between the fast of 17th Tammuz and the fast of Tisha B’Av (9th Av) in which we remember the destruction of both the first and second temples. During these three weeks, there are no weddings, we don’t listen to music or have haircuts. [Children's Rabbi]
