Tisha B’Av
The Awakening of Israel

Tisha B'Av signifies the destruction of the holy temple and the exile of Jews for 2000 years. This makes it the saddest day in the Hebrew calendar. The events of Tisha B'AV led to the eventual reunion of the Jewish nation, marking 70 years of Israeli prosperity and independence.
