Erev Tisha B’Av 5779/2019

August 10 @ 8:29 pm - 10:00 pm

Our rabbis taught that one of the reasons for the destruction of the Temple was “sinat hinam,” senseless hatred amongst Jews. Our rabbis also taught that the Messiah will be born on Tisha B’Av—suggesting that out of this destruction, there is also the potential of redemption, and reconciliation.
It is traditional on Tisha B’Av to refrain from eating, drinking, engaging in sexual relations, bathing and wearing leather shoes. The study of religious texts is limited to those which enhance and reflect the day’s mood such as the books of Lamentations and Job and other texts referring to the destruction of Jerusalem. Going to work, using money, driving and other restrictions applicable to Shabbat and festivals are not applicable to Tisha B’Av.

8:29pm Beginning of Fast (at sunset)
9:10pm Shabbat Ends
9:30pm Ma’ariv, Havdalah, Eichah, and Kinot (lamentations)
