Tisha b'Av 2022 At CFJL


Important information about this Shabbos at CFJL

This Shabbos is the 9th of Av. The fast itself is ‘pushed off’ until Sunday. Please see these basic laws and customs about Tisha b’Av this year.

On Shabbaos all public displays of mourning are strictly prohibited. On this day we eat, drink and rejoice as is customary—and even more so.

Mincha will be right after the Kiddush.

On Shabbos afternoon, after 12:57 PM we may only learn topics that deal with the destruction of the Holy Temple. We do not learn Pirkei Avos after Mincha. 

No mournful “separation meal” is conducted before the fast. Instead, shortly before sunset we partake of a full pre-fast meal. Care must be taken, however, that this meal ends before sunset.

The fast Begins on Saturday night at 8:07 PM, up until that time one may eat meat and drink wine.

When Shabbos end at 8:55 PM, we say Baruch Hamavdil Bein Kodesh L'chol and remove our leather shoes.
Maariv, back at CFJL at 9:30 PM, followed by Eicha and Kinos. 

We do not make Havdalah until Sunday night. However, we do light a candle and make a Bracha (Borei Meorei Ha’esh) on Saturday night.

We sit on a low chair Saturday night, until Sunday at 12:57 PM.

On Sunday morning, for Negel Vasser- we wash fingers only.

Shachris at 8:00 AM. No Talis and Tefillin. Kinos after Shacharis.

We return to Shul at 7:10 PM. We put on Talis and Tefillin, say the entire Shema, the daily song, Ein Ke'ilokeinu, and daily Tehillim.

We will begin Mincha - still wearing Tallis and Tefillin - at 7:30 PM. 

After Mincha we put on Rabbeinu Tam Tefillin.

The fast ends at 8:41 PM, after Maariv we wash a proper Negel Vasser, then Sanctification of the moon, and Havdalah. We do not use a candle or Besamim for Havdalah, just a cup of wine.

The restrictions of the nine days end after nightfall, and Havdalah wine, music, bathing and haircutting are permitted. We do not eat meat or drink wine (aside from Havdallah) until the next morning..

Have an easy and meaningful fast. May we merit the rebuilding of the Holy Temple today!
