    Israel Fast of Shiva and Tammuz

    in Visual Arts

    14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the Lord's house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.


    Fast of Shiva Asar B'Tammuz in Israel


    The Fast of Shiva Asar B'Tammuz is held on the 17th day of Tammuz, which is the fourth month of the Hebrew calendar. It observes five calamities that affected the Jewish people. These are: (1) Moses broke the tablets of stone and (2) an idol known as “the Golden Calf” was erected in 1313 BCE; (3) the daily sacrificial offerings were discontinued in 423 BCE; (4) Jerusalem’s walls were breached in 69 BCE; and (5) the Roman military leader Apostomus burned a Torah scroll possibly around 50 CE just before the Bar Kokhba revolt.

    What do people do?


    Many Jewish people fast from dawn until nightfall by abstaining from food and drinks. However, people who are ill or weak, children and pregnant or nursing mothers may not fast completely but only eat simple food. In addition, special prayers are recited and sections of the Torah and Haftarah (Haftorah, Haptara) are read during the morning and evening services. In contrast to some fast days, Jewish people may be permitted to wear leather and wash themselves on the 17th of Tammuz.


    Public life


    The Fast of Shiva Asar B'Tammuz, also known as the 17th (or Seventeenth) of Tammuz, is not a public holiday in Israel.


    Background


    The 17th day of Tammuz is a day of mourning for Jewish people. It marks the anniversary of five calamities. On this day in the year 1313 BCE, Moses broke the tablets of stone that were inscribed with the Ten Commandments and the idol of “the Golden Calf” was erected.

    WITCHCRAFT POWERS ARE THRIVING


    There is no longer any doubt that witches are real and active in modern America. The author asked in the book Be Free that was written in the seventies “Do you believe that witches and wizards are real? At that time, Christians hardly believed that demons were real, let alone there were people practicing witchcraft. “All one has to do is keep your eyes on Jesus,” many said. Another thing, “We don’t want to lift the Devil up or give him any credit,” others would say. Meantime, right before our eyes on of the greatest occult explosions was taking place.

    How Do You Celebrate Your Birthday?

    in Culture

    Ah, birthday celebrations!  The one time per year that you can make things all about you coming into the world.  The one time per year that the focus is solely on you and no one else.  Everyone loves a good birthday party, right?


    Well, not everyone.  I don't make a big deal out of my birthday.  I live each day as if it's my birthday, so although I'm appreciative of seeing another year, a celebration really isn't all that necessary.  But I don't hate on those who with to "turn up" on theirs.  At least not until it crosses the line from a birthday celebration to narcissism.  


    On tonight's show, we'll discuss how we celebrate birthdays.  What do you do when you share a birthday with someone close?  What do you do when your birthday is near a gift-giving holiday?  What do you do when your birthday falls on the same day as an important event?


    These things, Zone Coverage and more on the Talk 2 Q Radio Show!  "No experts.  Just opinions."


    Show No. 511


    Scheduled for 90-120 mins.

    Davante Adams doppelgänger

    in Sports

    Mind of Mansion Podcast Episode 161: Matt Kelley @fantasy_mansion reviews Davante Adams, Ty Montgomer, and Jeff Janis in the wake of Jordy Nelson's torn ACL. 


    Mourning Jordy Nelson was one of the NFL's most efficient wide receivers given consistently high target volume. 


    Ty Montgomery crashes a Jeff Janis dance party. 


    Per Pro Football Focus, Aaron Rodgers' passer rating when throwing to Jordy Nelson was 150.2, 130.3, 111.6 and 128.2 over the past four seasons. 


    Arian Foster will be back to full health before most fantasy gamers believe. 


    Arian Foster's ADP collapsed based on inaccurate or unknowable details about his injury and related surgery, but he is now a screaming value. 


    If Le'Veon Bell is worth a first round pick, then Arian Foster is worth a fourth round pick. 


    Jeff Janis is the only wide receiver with a split end/X receiver profile on the Green Bay Packers roster. 


    Ty Montgomery and Davante Adams are clones and are the two most comparable wide receivers on the PlayerProfiler.com. 


    Ty Montgomery's junior year production at Stanford helped to illuminate his potential at the NFL level. 


    Based on role fit, Ty Montgomery is a bigger threat to Davante Adams than Jeff Janis longer term.
