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.

今日はティシュアー・ヴェ・アーヴと言って、二度のエルサレムの神殿崩壊を始めとするユダヤ教の歴史に起こった悲劇的な事件を嘆く日です。断食と悲嘆の日とされ、前日の日没から始まり本日の夜に終了します。昨夜大半のお店や商売は閉まっていました。ウルパンは今日お休みです。

Much love,
Kaori
