The three weeks begin on 17th of Tamuz and ends on the 9th of Av. During these three weeks the Jewish People mourn over the destruction of the Holy Temple on other catastrophes that befell them at this time throughout all of history.
This unique book contains 470 pages packed with tremendous insights, teachings, and prayers to be said during this time. There are certain texts and portions of Talmud that the Jewish People traditionally study during this time, and Rabbi Berland wrote many prayers based on these teachings that can also be studied as a running commentary of those Talmudic portions and stories.
The highlight of this book may be the prayers and commentary that the Rav wrote on megilas Eicha which is traditionally read during the 9th of Av, and it is recommended study during the entire 3 week period.
