Take a very meaningful 6 minute course about Tisha B’Av, the saddest day on the Jewish calendar.

Our sages teach that the ninth day of Av is a cursed day that is eternally destined for tragedy and destruction. The first such tragedy was the biblical episode of the spies, in which the Jewish people rejected the God given Land of Israel.

On this day, we mourn the destruction of the two Holy Temples, but that’s not all. Tragedy after tragedy has befallen the Jewish people on this day, and the crying continues.
