Tish'a B'Av - תשעה באב

08/31/2017 to 08/01/2017

A day of fasting in Judaism, named for the
ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar

The fast commemorates the destruction of both the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date.

In Israel, restaurants and places of entertainment are closed on the eve of Tisha B'Av and the following day by law.
