25 HOURS OF FASTING?! …AND YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD A BAD DAY
Today, in the Hebrew calendar, is the 9th of Av (Tisha B’Av in Hebrew), considered by many to be the most tragic day of the year.
Tradition holds that both the First and Second (above) Temples were destroyed on this day. Additionally, the first Crusade began on the 9th of Av, and Jews were expelled from England, France, and Spain on that day, in 1290, 1306, and 1492 respectively.
The day of mourning is observed through a 25 hour fast, and is used as a period of reflection.
