Tisha B'Av for the year 2023 is celebrated/ observed on sundown of Wednesday, July 26th ending at sundown on Thursday, July 27.


Tisha B'Av is celebrated in the Hebrew calendar on ninth day of the month of Av. The day is a day of remembrance of the destruction of the First and Second Temple in Jerusalem.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
