Tisha B'Av is the saddest day on the Jewish calendar because of the incredible series of tragedies which occurred on that date throughout Jewish History.
The tragic events include the destruction of the first and second temples in Jerusalem.
There are 33 educational links about the 9th of Av on my Jewish hotsites at the address below.
May this mournful period turn into a joyous one in the near future.
