This year's Tisha B'Av fast will begin on Saturday night, August 6 and end about 24 hours later, on August 7, when the stars come out.



The Wall Heritage Foundation will hold a reading of the Megillat of Lamentations and a lamentation by the cantor in the style of the Mizrah Yehuda testimony Naftali and the cantor in the style of Ashkenaz Shlomo Glick.

The statement of mourning will be broadcast by the Western Wall Heritage Foundation for those who are unable to physically reach the Western Wall plaza.

The transmitter will be broadcast on the Western Wall website, starting at 23:15.

Since the fast begins at the end of Shabbat, the breaking meal is actually a "third meal", and it is permissible to eat meat and wine as well as more than one dish.

Although the fast begins before Shabbat comes out, mourning customs are not practiced in public until Shabbat comes out, so only when the stars come out do they take off their shoes and change into sand clothes.

However, the prohibition of bathing starts already at sunset.



On Shabbat night, they do not make Havdalah, but bless the "Creator of the Lights of the Fire" for lighting a candle.

And at the end of the fast, they make the Havdalah with wine only, without a candle and perfume.

Because the fast is postponed, on the day after the fast, 11 of Av, there are no mourning customs, however there are those who do not eat meat until the morning after the fast.

Mourning customs

The Tisha B'Av fast is the second most important in Judaism, and apart from the prohibition of eating and drinking, it also prohibits washing, applying oil, wearing leather shoes and "using the bed".

Also, they used to not say "peace", study Torah, work (apart from necessary work), sleep on a mattress and sit on a chair until midnight.



On this day, the Book of Lamentations is read in the synagogues and laments are said over the destruction of the house, all while sitting on the floor or on stools.

In some synagogues it is customary to remove the veil from the Ark of the Covenant and dim the lights.

Placing tefillin and wrapping in a tallit are postponed in most communities for the minachah prayer, with the easing of mourning customs.

In some communities it is customary to continue with the mourning customs until the day after the fast, but not this year because the fast takes place anyway on the day of Av.

In the synagogues they used to sit on the floor or on stools.

Why fast on Tisha B'Av?

Tisha B'Av is the most severe of the four fasts associated with the destruction of the Temple, as well as the longest.

According to Jewish tradition, on this day the two Temples were destroyed, and also according to the Mishnah, the sin of the spies occurred because of which it was decreed that the Israelites would not enter the land, the city of Bitar was captured during the Bar Kochba rebellion, and the land of Jerusalem was plowed in preparation for the establishment of the Roman city of Ilia Capitolina on its ruins.



Throughout Jewish history, other tragic events have been attributed to Tisha B'Av or the days adjacent to it, including the expulsion of the Jews of England by King Edward I in 1290, the expulsion of the Jews of France by Philip IV in 1306 and the expulsion from Spain in 1492.

In 1942, the Nazis began the great action from the Warsaw Ghetto to the Treblinka extermination camp.
