Ultra Orthodox Jewish men pray as they gather for the ritual of Tisha B’Av at the Meah Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem, August 13, 2016. The Tisha B’Av ceremony, literally the ninth day of the month of Av in the Hebraic calendar, is the darkest day in the Jewish calendar, marking the destruction of the two temples, first by the Babylonians in 587 BC and later by the Romans in 70 AD.
