Halacha Guide: 17 Tammuz and 3 Weeks 5780

Please click here for a Halacha Guide relevant to 17 Tammuz and the 3 weeks (

Also, a reminder to arrange the following before the three weeks begin:

Take any necessary haircuts
Purchase/wear any new clothing
Begin packing for any permitted journeys that will occur during the Three Weeks
Any concerns regarding COVID-19 and fasting must be decided by a Rabbinic authority taking the local circumstances into account. At present, there is B"H no general exemption for Melbourne.

We are grateful to Rabbi Shmuel Lesches for sharing this with us.

May we merit that יהפכו ימים אלו לששון ולשמחה – these days shall be transformed into joy and happiness – with the coming of Moshiach בקרוב ממש.


Yeshivah Shule
