After a brief hiatus from posting Jewish music events due to the Three
Weeks, I am glad to continue once again posting events in the next few
weeks in the NY/NJ area. If you would like an event in the future to
be posted, just respond to this email. To unsubscribe to this list,
just hit unsubscribe at the bottom of this email. Shabbat Nachamu is
named because of it's Haftorah, the great prophecy of consolation from

The prophet Isiah begins his prophecy with the double language
"Console, console my People." Why the double language? Many
commentators say that it is simply to mourn for the loss of both the
first and second Temple. However, some commentaries say that it is to
comfort both our mind and our soul. Many people believe that the
Temple only represented political autonomy and power. However, the
Talmud says that there is a Jerusalem in Heaven which corresponds to
the Jerusalem in this world. Jerusalem means so much more. It is the
meeting place of Heaven and Earth, the connection between body and
soul. May we merit to witness the full consolation which the prophet
spoke about very soon.
