Tish'a B'Av

Tisha B'Av ("the Ninth of Av") is an annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar. The fast commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, which occurred approximately 656 years apart, but on the same date. Accordingly, the day has been called the "saddest day in Jewish history."
