Thanks for the entertaining explanation of the fast. It's easier to share this with my staff than explaining why I am fasting. May it be a meaningful one for all of us.

One small historical correction
Thanks for the lovely song! One correction: The walls of Jerusalem were not breached by the Babylonians on the 17th of Tammuz; it was the Romans. Both Holy Temples were destroyed on the 9th of Av - the first Temple by the Babylonians, and the second Temple, by the Romans. The Babylonians breached the walls of Jerusalem on the 9th of Tammuz, while the Romans breached the rebuilt walls on the 17th of Tammuz many years later. The reason why we commemorate the breaching of the walls by fasting on the 17th rather than the 9th of Tammuz is because the the first exile lasted only 70 years, but we are still suffering for nearly 2,000 years from the disastrous effects of the second breaching of the walls and the subsequent destruction of the Temple. May it be rebuilt speedily.

This is a great educational tool---awesome lyrics, a catchy tune, and great illustrations. Great job! Too bad it's made with music so you can't listen to it during the three weeks (when we don't listen to music.)Thank you for all the hard work that went into this!
