Tisha B’Av is the Jewish fast day mourning the many tragedies that befell the Jewish people on this date, most significantly, the destruction of the First and Second Beit Hamikdash (Temples). Tisha B’Av is preceded by a period of three weeks of mourning, with even further restrictions taking place the nine days immediately before the fast. Below is a collection of Tisha B’Av lesson plans, videos, and articles created by The Lookstein Center staff or contributed to the site by Jewish educators.
