Tisha B’Av (Jewish)

July 17 @ 6:00 pm - July 18 @ 9:00 pm

Tisha B’Av is the annual fast day commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem and the subsequent exile of the Jews from the land of Israel. Over the centuries, other tragic events have come to be commemorated on this day, including the massacres of the Crusades, the Jewish expulsion from Spain, and the Holocaust. Today in many modern Jewish communities, Tishah B’Av stands as a day to reflect on the suffering that still occurs in our world.

More Information

Holiday Greeting: On Tisha B’Av we do not exchange greetings; we do not say “hello” or “how are you” and the like.
