Yeshiva University and Orthodox Union Offer Joint Learning Programs for Three Weeks and Tisha B’Av

Yeshiva University’s Center for the Jewish Future (CJF) and the Orthodox Union (OU) will once again combine efforts on programs for the Three Weeks and Nine Days leading to Tisha B’Av, to be followed by a variety of shiurim [lectures]on Tisha B’Av itself.

The Three Weeks begin on Tuesday, July 15— the Fast of Shiva Asar B’Tammuz, the Fast of the 17th of Tammuz, with its restrictions on levity. The Nine Days, with its deeper restrictions, begin on Sunday night, July 27, Rosh Chodesh Av. Tisha B’Av itself, the Ninth of Av, extends from Monday evening August 4, until nightfall Tuesday, August 5.
