Jewish men pray at the Western Wall on the eve of Tisha B’Av in the Old City of Jerusalem, on July 29, 2020. The Tisha B’Av ceremony, literally the ninth day of the month of Av in the Hebraic calendar, is the darkest day in the Jewish calendar, marking the destruction of the two temples, first by the Babylonians in 587 BC and later by the Romans in 70 AD.
