This Sabbath is referred to as Shabbos Nachamu due to the consolation of the prophet Yeshayahu (40:1-26) which serves as its haftara.
Monday is the 15th of Av – Chamisha Asar be’Av, which our Talmud (Ta’anis 26b) refers to as a special festival that was celebrated when our holy Temple existed in Jerusalem. We do not say Tachanun (nor at Mincha on the day preceding – Sunday), but we do say Kel Erech Appayim, La’menatze’ach (between Ashrei and U’va Letziyyon). We do not say the Yehi Ratzon at the conclusion of the Torah reading.
The following chapters of Tehillim are being recited by many congregations and Yeshivos for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael: Chapters 83, 130, 142. – Y.K.Rabbi Yaakov Klass
