Next weekend is Tisha B’Av, which is considered the saddest day of the Jewish year. The communal day of mourning marks a number of calamities, including the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem.

Similar to Yom Kippur, the day is marked with a 25-hour fast, which starts on Saturday, Aug. 13, and ends at 7:42 on Sunday, Aug. 14.
