In a few weeks, Jews around the world will commemorate Tisha B'av. The name of this day is a specific date, the 9th of Av. On this day, the 9th of Av, the Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed not once, but twice: first by the Babylonians in 586 BCE and again by the Romans in the year 70 CE.
Elie Wiesel, a famous and beloved Holocaust survivor, passed away last Shabbat.
