Tisha B'Av.jpg

The Three Weeks is an annual mourning period

when we mourn the destruction of the Holy Temple.

 

The period begins on the 17th of the Hebrew month of Tammuz,

a fast day that marks the day when the walls of Jerusalem

were breached by the Romans in 69 CE.

17 Tammuz is a fast day, on which we refrain from

eating and drinking from dawn to nightfall --

this year on Thursday, July 9th.
 

The Three Weeks reaches its climax and concludes with the

fast of the 9th of Av (Tisha B'Av),

the date when both Holy Temples were set aflame.

This is the saddest day of the Jewish calendar, and it is also the date

that many other tragedies befell our people.

This year the fast commemorating Tisha B'Av will begin on
 Wednesday night, July 29 through Thursday, July 30.
