Tisha B'Av and Tu B'Av
Here is a recording of a shiur I gave last night in Yad Binyamin. In the shiur I look at the relationship between the mourning of Tisha B'Av and the happiness of Tu B'Av (Fifteenth of Av). The five tragedies that happened on one are corrected by the five celebrations of the other.
In addition I talk about what that means for us today, and how Tu B'Av is relevant nowadays (apart from being the Jewish 'Valentine's' Day with parties on the beach).
There is also a discussion of crying at night, and its antidote of learning Torah at night.
There is an audio file and a pdf of the source sheet.
May we merit to celebrate the festival of the 9th of Av with the coming of Mashiach speedily.
