The Fifth Month, Av, of the Hebrew Sacred Calendar referred to by its Babylonian name. Historically, it is considered the month where "the darkest events in Jewish history occurred" [1] primarily because both the First and Second Temples were destroyed during the fifth month and 9th day. [2] Incidentally, on this same month and day in the year 1290 a.d. the Jewish people were expelled from England and were not allowed to return for almost 400 years. [3]
