Halachic Notes

  • The fast begins at 8:24 PM on Saturday (before the end of Shabbat) and ends at 8:59 PM on Sunday.
  • Davening is done quietly and without nusah.
  • At in-person davening, the lights will be off and we will daven by flashlight. Most people will be sitting on the floor.
  • As a sign of mourning, it is customary not to greet people on Tisha B'Av.
