What is
Tishah B'Av?

Tishah B'Av is regarded as the saddest day on the Jewish calendar because so many tragedies occurred including both the destruction of Solomon's Temple and the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Jews observe Tishah B'Av by fasting and refraining from bathing, using skin lotion or oils, wearing leather shoes, and being intimate with their spouses. Services include reading the Book of Lamentations and reciting Kinnot.
