Etz Hayim logo
 

 

Etz Hayim—"Tree of Life" exists to promote Christian-Jewish relations and dialogue, and a joint biblical, spiritual and liturgical self-consciousness and cooperation.

As Christians, we cannot consider Judaism as a foreign religion; nor do we include the Jews among those called to turn from idols and to serve the true God (cf. 1 Thes 1:9). With them, we believe in the one God who acts in history, and with them we accept his revealed word...

TZOM TAMMUZ | 01 JULY
and the
THE TREE WEEKS
1ST JULY – 21ST JULY
18 Tammuz – 9 AV

Tzom Tammuz (“tzom” means “fast”) is associated with many calamitous dates in Jewish history. On this day Jews fast, refrain from joyous celebrations, observe special prayers and Torah readings. It is on this day that the “Three Weeks,” a period of mourning for the destruction of the First and Second Temples begins. The “Three Weeks” come to an end with the fast of Tisha B'Av (The 9th of Av). Read more...

The three weeks

HAFTAROT OF ADMONITION

The Haftarot of Admonition are the haftarah portions which are read during the three weeks preceding Tisha B'Av. Their designation, Haftarot of Admonition [or Affliction], derives from the Period known since Rabbinic times as “bein ha-metzarim” (Between the Breaches) a time of mourning which remembers the breaching of the walls of Jerusalem by the Babylonians in the time of the first Temple. [Bein ha-metzarim is a phrase taken from Lamentations 1:3, “All her pursuers overtook her in the narrow places.”]

Note. When 17th Tammuz falls on a Shabbat as it does in this year (2018) the fast is moved to Sunday, 18th Tammuz (1st July 2018).
