Shacharis at the Kosel on Fast Day of 17 Tammuz

Shacharis at the Kosel at netz on Sunday morning, the fast day marking Shivah Assar B’Tammuz. Five tzaros happened to Klal Yisrael on this day, as cited in Gemara Taanis 26:
1) The first luchos were broken in 2449/1312 B.C.E.
2) The walls of Yerushalayim were breached in 3339/422 B.C.E. before the destruction of the First Beis Hamikdash, and also before the destruction of the Second Beis Hamikdash in 3829/69 B.C.E.
3) The korban tamid ceased to be sacrificed in the First Beis Hamikdash era.
4) An idol was placed in the heichal of the First Beis Hamikdash by Menasheh Hamelech.
5) Apostomos, a Greek officer who governed Eretz Yisrael before the destruction of the Second Beis Hamikdash, burned a sefer Torah in public in 3823/63 B.C.E. According to some, it was he who placed the idol in the Beis Hamikdash at the same time that he burned the sefer Torah. (Kosel Heritage)
