This Shabbat is the seventeenth of Tamuz. The fast of Tamuz 17 will be postponed to Sunday. The fast will begin at 4:23 AM and conclude at 9:49 PM. Services will take place at the Shull as usual at 8:30 AM. If you are able to attend a Mincha and Maariv service at 8:20 PM, please be in contact with the Rabbi.

This period commemorates the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. During this time we refrain from listening to music, purchasing new clothes, and other activities that tend to produce happiness.
