Interesting video

I gained enormously from this beautifully produced video!

I have loved all the videos from! This one had a profound impact. The message/messages were so meaningful. I hope, bli neder, to watch it at other times, not just during the 3 weeks! Everyone involved in its production did a wonderful job.
I found nothing to 'criticize'. Only gratitude at what I gained from it. May anyone fasting have an easy fast. Thank you so much to alephbeta for this wonderful video. Kol tuv.

Response to above comment

Its possible that the omissions you mentioned above weren't necessary to the video, although they are important facts. This video was about connecting to G-d in a real way, not using symbols and hiding behind them.

calendar could mislead

The calendar that has the three weeks filled in, appearing 25 seconds into this video ,marks Tisha bAv ias Monday, which is the eighth of Av. In fact, of course, it is Tuesday, three weeks after 17th of Tammuz. Viewers should not be misled.
