Rabbi Becher's VLOG
Rabbi Mordechai Becher’s VLog – Learning to Mourn – Parshat Devarim 5776
When a relative dies, the most intense period of mourning is right before the burial, after which it becomes less intense. However, with Tisha B’Av, we start with mild mourning and as we come closer to Tisha B’Av the mourning becomes more intense. Rabbi Becher explains why this is so.
