30 (Tisha B’Av | ティシュアー・ヴェ・アーヴ)

July 20, 2010

In Jerusalem, taken September 2009

Today is Tisha B’Av, or the ninth (tisha) day of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar. It marks the destruction of the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem as well as other tragic events in Jewish history. It is a day of fasting and mourning, beginning from sunset the night before to nightfall. Many businesses were closed as of sunset last night. The Ulpan is closed today.


Much love,
