Tisha B'Av in Jerusalem (Part 1)
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Tish B'Av is an annual fast day in Judaism. The fast commemorates the destruction of the 1st Temple and 2nd Temple in Jerusalem.
It began today at sunset and will end tomorrow (July 16th) in the evening.
I took these pics a couple of hours ago at the Western Wall where many people will come to pray. The book of Lamentations is traditionally read during this time.
