Sight & Sounds of Tisha B'Av 5776 at the Kosel

Jews of all walks of life pray as they gather for Tisha B'Av at the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem, August 14, 2016. The Tisha B'Av ceremony, 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.
