Tisha B’Av Tisha B’Av is a sad day in the history of the Jewish people. On this day, the Holy Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed—twice. The first Holy Temple was destroyed by the Babylonian Empire in 423 BCE. It was a devastating blow to the Jewish people, but we survived and eventually rebuilt the Temple. Then in 69 CE, on the very same day on the Jewish calendar, the Roman Empire destroyed our second Holy Temple.

Relevant Laws for When Tisha B’Av falls on Saturday Night/Sunday

Tisha B’Av is a day of national mourning. It commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Batai Mikdash which both occurred on the Ninth of Av. It also commemorates the tragedies that have occurred to the Jewish people throughout our history.

On Shabbos Chazon (the Shabbos before Tisha B’Av) one is permitted to eat meat and drink wine at all of the meals, including Seudah Shelishit.

All of the laws of Seudas Hamafsekes (the last meal before the fast) are suspended, but it is preferable not to invite guests for Seudah Shelishit. The meal must be finished before twilight, which is 8:01 PM this year.

Preparations for the fast may not be made on Shabbos. Non-leather shoes and Kinos/Eichah books may not be brought to Shul on Shabbos afternoon. One should bring them to the shul either on Friday evening before sunset or on Saturday night after nightfall. Since the heart rejoices in the study of Torah, from noon on Shabbos, some people refrain from learning topics other than what is relevant to Tisha B’Av or mourning. However, many people learn all topics of Torah until sunset. When Tisha B’Av falls on Sunday, anyone who must eat on Saturday night/Sunday for health reasons should first recite Havdalah omitting the blessing over spices. Women, who normally do not daven the Maariv prayer, must recite the following phrase Saturday night after nightfall before doing any work: “Baruch Hamavdil Ben Kodesh Lechol.”

According to the Rabbis, those who observe the laws of Tisha B’Av will ultimately participate in the rejoicing to be celebrated upon the appearance of the third Beit HaMikdash.
