Pirkei Avos: 3


This Friday, Erev Shabbos, is Chamisha Asar B’Av – the 15th of 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. This Shabbos, is referred to as Shabbos Nachamu as we read the Haftara Nachamu Nachamu.

All tefillos as ususal. We resume the study of Pirkei Avos (chap. 3).

   The following chapters of Tehillim are being recited by many congregations and Yeshivos for our brothers and sisters in Eretz Yisrael: Chapter 83, 130, 142. – Y.K.
