The 9 Days are Upon Us, Again ... But They'll Shortly be Followed by The 9 Days of Jerry!

Rosh Chodesh Av starts around 8:30pm Israel time tonight (Thursday 19 July) and with it "The 9 Days," the last part of "The Three Weeks" during which multiple calamities happened to the Jewish People, culminating with the destruction of the First and Second Temples.

The 9 Days climaxes at Tisha b'Av (the 9th of Av) during which we fast and mourn for the destruction of the Temples and we pray (and plan) to build the 3rd Temple - it should happen speedily and in our day.

Meanwhile, as is our minhag for the last three years, Radio Free Nachlaot switches to an all-Torah, all-Talk format during the 9 Days.

We'll be bringing you the most thought-provoking Torah, the best of our archives and some a-Capella music now and then to break it up a bit. We've got a lot to talk about and we're really focused on everything having to do with the Holy Temple and all Temple-related programming.

So stay with us here on Radio Free Nachlaot - because as soon as these 9 Days are over, the NEXT 9 days will be ... Radio Free Nachlaot's 3rd Annual 9 Days of Jerry (August 1st - 9th) and everybody knows those 9 days are the happiest 9 days of the year - at least until the Temple is rebuilt, and then we'll be celebrating instead of mourning during the 3 Weeks!
