This Shabbos is 17 Tammuz, that marks the beginning of The Three Weeks period of mourning which culminates on the 9th of Av, commemorating the conquest of Jerusalem, the destruction of the Holy Temple and the dispersion of the Jewish people.

Tammuz 17 was instituted as a fast day. This year, however, the actual fast is held on Sunday, due to the holiness of Shabbos.

Shabbos is a taste of a perfected world, where it is all transformed to holiness, the way it will be when Moshiach comes. This year we get to taste a transformed fast day of 17 Tammuz on Shabbos, while it is actually observed on the next day, Sunday. 

May we merit to witness the completely transformed world, with the coming of Moshiach, Amen!
