One week hiatus



Tonight we observe the 15th of Av, a date that the Talmud says was one of the 2 happiest days of the year. It begins with the end of their time in the desert when they realized that the terrible decree of the sin of the spies was over. However, another positive change was the lifting of the restriction against marrying out of one's tribe. As such, this time of year is associated with the efforts at finding matches for all those who need one. Indeed, this Shabbat has become the premier weekend for singles events across the country. 

This Shabbat is also known for the beginning of the process of consolation, as we emerge from the mourning of the last 3 weeks. It is called Shabbat Nachamu after the haftarah which is read meaning "be consoled". And the portion this Shabbat is Vaetchanan, referring to the act of prayer of Moshe, pleading for his entry into the land of Israel. There were many factors which dictated why his prayers at that time couldn't be answered. Nevertheless, we should take our cue from his gargantuan efforts in prayer as a model for us in our times of need.
