"The Nine Days"

Friday, 5 August, 2016 - 10:35 am

The first nine days of the month of Av (starting from this Friday, August 5) are days of mourning for the destruction of the first and second Holy Temples. Among other observances, during this time we refrain from eating meat or drinking wine (except on Shabbat), swimming or bathing for pleasure, remodeling or expanding a home and buying new clothes.
