Tisha B'Av: July 31-August 1
Tisha B'Av commemorates the destruction of the second בֵּית־הַמִּקְדָּשׁ, or Holy Jewish Temple, in the year 70 CE. The Roman Empire destroyed the Temple and much of Jerusalem in retaliation against the Jewish people, who had rebelled against the Empire four years earlier. Roman soldiers are said to have stolen various spoils from the Temple, including its Menorah, and to have sold them to fund the construction of the Colosseum.
Nearby congregations are hosting services and activities for Tisha B'Av.

Hillel expelled the Jewish LGTBQ student group for participating in a Jewish Voice for Peace fundraiser to benefit refugees.
