Kids are all unsettled! Rivky is settled in at home from camp near Montreal! Mendel settling in to be a learning counselor in camp in Kalkaska, Michigan! Levi leaves on Sunday to camp in Parksville, NY! Chaya is enjoying being a counselor in a Montreal day camp! Bluma and Menucha are enjoying the local Gan Yisroel day camp!

"The Three Weeks" : During the Three Weeks, from 17th of Tamuz to the 9th of Av, we commemorate the conquest of Jerusalem, the destruction of the Holy Temple and the dispersion of the Jewish people.

Weddings and other joyful events are not held during this period; like mourners, we do not cut our hair, and various pleasurable activities are limited. (The particular mourning customs vary from community to community, so consult a competent halachic authority for details.)

Citing the verse (Isaiah 1:27) "Zion shall be redeemed with mishpat [Torah] and its returnees with tzedakah," the Rebbe urged that we increase in Torah study (particularly the study of the laws of the Holy Temple) and charity during this period.
