Weekly Hashkafa Shiur #103 | Shabbat Nachamu: How Hashem Will Console Us by Rabbi Mendel Kessin

Rabbi Mendel Kessin – Shares with us the story of our Sages including Rabbi Akiva and why he is laughing (while the other Sages are weeping) when the fox exits the Holy Temple during the time after its destruction. Why is this story presented now? Because this Shabbos is the Shabbos of Comfort (where we read this specific Haftarah after Tisha B’Av). Why does it say “nachamu, nachamu” (comfort, comfort) twice? Listen to the video for the fascinating answer. Shabbat Shalom!
