The fast of Tisha B’Av that starts on Monday at sundown commemorates multiple tragedies in the Jewish history. The destructions of the first and second temples, as well as the Roman massacre of the Jews of Bettar in 132, the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492 and from England in 1290, all believed to have happened on the ninth day (tisha in Hebrew) of the Jewish month of Av.
