Shabbat of Vision
Based on the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe; adapted by Rabbi Yanki Tauber; courtesy of Meaningfullife.com. Art by S. Kranz
And I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, but the people with me did not see it; yet a great terror befell them, and they fled into hiding. (Daniel 10:7)

But if they did not see the vision, why were they terrified? Because though they themselves did not see, their souls saw. (Talmud, Megillah 3a)

On the ninth day of the month of Av (“Tisha B’Av”) we fast and mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Both the first Temple (833–423 BCE) and the second Temple (349 BCE–69 CE) were destroyed on this date. The Shabbat preceding the fast day is called the “Shabbat of Vision,” for on this Shabbat we read a chapter from the Prophets (Isaiah 1:1–27) that begins, “The vision of Isaiah . . 
"Everyone must regard himself and the world as evenly poised between good and guilt...If he performed a good deed, he has shifted the balance of his fate, and that of the entire world to good, and has brought deliverance and salvation upon himself and upon them all."
-Maimonides, Laws of Teshuvah Ch. 3, Law 4
"The time of our redemption has arrived."
