During the hottest time of the summer, when the land of Israel is parched and dry, we pause for the holiday of The holiday on which the destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem is commemorated through fasting and prayers.. It commemorates the destruction of the first and second temples in Jerusalem and provides the opportunity to mourn for the suffering of our people and suffering throughout the world. Other minor fast days remind us of additional events from our shared history, and provide opportunities for reflection in our hectic lives.
