Tisha B’Av 2022 Schedule
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.

All of the laws of Seudas Hamafsekes (the last meal before the fast) are suspended,. The meal must be finished before twilight, which is 8:05 PM this year.
Before coming to Shul Saturday night for Maariv, recite the following phrase after nightfall: “Baruch Hamavdil Ben Kodesh Lechol.” Then change into your Tisha B’Av non-leather shoes.
Preparations for the fast may not be made on Shabbos. Non-leather shoes, specific for Tisha B’av, 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.
