This Talmud class is about the 15th day of Menachem-Av. This date is identified in the Gemara as the holiday once celebrated as the happiest of them all! The final Mishnah in tractate Taanit states that Israel has no days as festive as the fifteenth of Av and Yom Kippur! The Gemmara asks for an explanation for this surprising statement about the festive nature of the fifteenth of Av. Initially, we may find the Talmud’s answers somewhat perplexing, but with proper analysis and the deep insight provided by our Rabbis, especially the brilliant explanation by the Rebbe, we’ll find it totally enlightening and truly uplifting!
