Thousands of Jews attended prayers at the Western Wall in Jerusalem to observe the start of the Tisha B’av fasting day on Monday night, days after violence shook the city.
Prayer leaders read aloud from the Book of Lamentations, the prophet Jeremiah’s biblical account of the destruction of the First Jewish Temple by invading Babylonians in 586 BC.
