Tisha B'Av

The 9th of Av.  On this day it was decreed on our ancestors in the desert  that they would not be brought in to the land of Israel.  For then the spies returned and Israel wept,  weeping for no reason  and it was decreed that (on this day future) generations would weep.  On this day was the great destruction,  on which were destroyed the first Temple and also the second.  The city of Betar was captured, which was a large city,  (killing) thousands and tens of thousands of Jews.  On this day (the Roman governor) Turnos-Rufus plowed  under the Temple and the surrounding area,  fulfilling the verse:1 ''Zion shall be ploughed like a field.''  There is another public fast,  the Fast of Esther, below Ch. 141:2. (KSA121:5)
 1) Jeremiah 26:18
