The 9 of Av has for millennia been a night and a day of mourning for the loss of the Temple and our exile from Jerusalem. People gather at the Kotel, the Western Wall, sit on the stone floor and recite the traditional mournful texts. For some years in Jerusalem, many have also walked around the whole perimeter of the Old City, signifying that we are back in Jerusalem to stay. The walk finishes at the Kotel where we join the mourners because, though the city is ours, the Temple is not yet rebuilt. There were many mourners behind me and this one in front as I took this photo of the marchers who had just arrived at the esplanade.
