Seasons of the Soul – The Three Weeks

Rabbi Trugman – Shares with us some more esoteric wisdom about the Three Weeks.

Personal Thoughts – There are many different ways to teach about the Three Weeks and due to the content it tends to be very negative. I enjoyed the way the Rabbi didn’t beat down the topic again and gave it a more uplifting hopeful bent on this period of time in Jewish History.

Seasons of the Soul – Preparation for the three weeks

Rabbi Trugman – Shares with us a great synopsis of what the Three Weeks are about (both what happened historically during this period of time and the customs we observe now).

Personal Thoughts – Many people have asked me in the past to explain the Three Weeks – what they mean, what happened, and why it matters. This video lecture gives a good concise explanation. Yesterday started the period of the Three Weeks, so if things tend to lean negative there is a spiritual explanation for it.

Torah Isn’t Private Property – It Belongs to the Entire World

Rabbi Zev Leff – As we approach the 17th of Tammuz (which is a fast day) which is the start of the Three Weeks of mourning for the loss of so many things in Judaism most namely the Beit Hamikdash (the Holy Temple in Jerusalem), the Rabbi explains that Torah is meant to be shared to all of Am Yisroel (the Nation of Israel) not only freely but as an obligation. Without sharing half of Judaism is incomplete. Share the love, share the Torah!

Personal Thoughts – Rabbi Leff basically encompassed the entire reason behind why I started this video blog (www.torah-share.com) and expressed it way better than I ever could. Please share!

Seasons of the Soul – The Month of Tamuz

Rabbi Trugman – Shares with us about the new Hebrew calendar month of Tamuz and the great potential of this month.

Personal Thoughts – Always looked at this month negatively as it contains the start of the auspicious three weeks ending in Tisha B’Av. The Rabbi infused some hope for me for what it may contain for us to grow and do tshuva.
