Tisha B’Av is a day of many mournful prayers throughout Jerusalem and all of Israel.

“Tisha B’Av does not mean remembering, it means reliving…that in every generation, every Jew must feel as if he himself lived in Jerusalem as it was being destroyed…as if he himself was one of the faithful onlookers who wept endless tears as they watched the Beit HaMikdash go up in flames, desecrated by the inhuman legions of Rome, and then threw themselves bodily into those very same flames. Every Jew must feel as if he personally were uprooted… and sent off as an exile to some strange country, far far from home,” one rabbi expressed his sentiments on the solemnity of this day for the Jewish people.
