Description

Rav Tzaddok haKohen of Lublin posits that there are times that are designated for pain because they involve greater proximity to G-d, and times that are less painful because they involve greater distance from G-d. In this light, the 22 days of bein hametzarim (17 of Tammuz to Tisha b'Av) are parallel to the 22 days from Rosh haShanah to Shemini Atzeret. A most unusual perspective.
