Laws and Customs of Tish’ah B’Ab

 

Tish’ah B’Ab begins at 8:21 p.m. on Saturday night, July 21.

Once the fast begins one may not eat or drink. Since it will still be Shabbat at the onset of the fast we do not show any outward mourning until Shabbat ends at 9:02 p.m. At that time, everyone should say: “Baruch Hamabdil Ben Kodesh Le’Hol”, change their shoes and come back to Shul for Arbit & Eicha which will begin at 9:10 p.m.

No washing any part of the body, except to remove dirt. No anointing with cream or perfume, (except for medical reasons) Deodorant is permitted. No marital relations. Greeting one another is prohibited. One may not engage in any activity that will distract his mind from mourning. Even going to work should be avoided at least until mid-day. Learning Torah is prohibited except for the portions relevant to Tisha B’Ab & mourning. It is our custom to wear tefilin at home to recite only Shema, and then say prayers in shul without them. Tefillin are worn during minhah.

The fast applies to all men and women older than Bar/Bat Misva. The only exception is one who is ill or one who is old and week that may become ill because of the fast. Anyone with a question should consult the Rabbi. Meat meals are permitted beginning Sunday night, July 22nd.

May we merit to see this sad day turn into a

day of happiness and celebration, speedily in our days!
