Tisha Be-Av

Western Wall

Tisha be-Av (the Ninth of Av) commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples. In Jewish tradition, the date has become synonymous with mourning and tragedy. Three weeks prior is the less well-known Fast of Tammuz which commemorates the fall of Jerusalem's walls. Between both dates, various mourning customs are practiced by observant Jews.
