When is Tisha Bav?

Tisha Bav (Tisha B'Av) is perhaps the saddest day in Jewish history. On this day there is no eating, drinking (even water), bathing, shaving, wearing make-up, or having sex.

After scouts returned from the promise land, many lost faith in entering Israel. As punishment, G-d decreed that the current generation would never enter, and that in the future this day will be a day of tragedy for the Jews.

There have been many tragic events on this day. In 586 BCE, the First Temple was destroyed. In 70CE, the Second Temple was destroyed. The Jews were expelled form England in 1290, from Spain in 1492, and 1942 started to be deported during World War II.
