The upcoming fast day Tisha B’av in August of 2022 will start at sundown on Friday, August 6, and continue until nightfall on Saturday, Aug. 7. This annual Jewish fast day commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem. Jews around the world will be fasting on this day. There are religious laws that must be observed during this day. You can learn more about them by reading more about the Jewish holiday.
The Jewish calendar relies on the sighting of the crescent Moon following the New Moon to determine the start of the month. Once that is determined, the Sanhedrin, or supreme court of ancient Israel, spread the news to Jewish communities around the world. Those living outside of ancient Israel were required to observe the holiday for two days in order to keep it on the right date. In August 2022, the Jewish community will celebrate this holiday with special observances.
The Jewish government is continuing its campaign of violence in Gaza just days before Tisha B’Av, the day of mourning. Healthy Orthodox Jews will abstain from bathing, wearing leather shoes, and cosmetics. They will not have any sexual relations or take the Torah. They will attend services where they will read the book of Lamentations and recite mourning prayers. At the synagogue, the ark will be draped in black.
In August 2022, Jewish people will celebrate Tu B’av, the Jewish holiday of love. This celebration is similar to Valentine’s Day, but it has roots in the Second Temple period. The Mishnah mentions that the holiday was once the time for matchmaking. In modern times, Tu B’av is celebrated as a day for lovers to reconnect with their partners. Today, the holiday is celebrated on the 15th of Av.
As an ancient Jewish festival, Tu B’Av is also a day for young women to find a suitable partner. Traditionally, the holiday was celebrated by young women in a vineyard, and they would dress in white. However, Tu B’Av has gained more popularity in recent years, with some Jewish women celebrating it as a day for love. The holiday has also become a celebration of reconciliation and rebirth.
In the United States, Tisha B’Av is not a federal holiday. However, some Jewish organizations may close their doors or limit their hours. It is believed that the Jewish people were unable to enter the Promised Land after the ten spies gave negative reports about the land. The Israelites were further devastated when the Romans captured Beitar, a fortress city. In 136 CE, the city of Jerusalem was destroyed.
