"Sabbath of vision" takes its name from the Haftarah read on the Shabbat prior to the mournful fast of Tisha B'Av, words of rebuke and doom from the Book of Isaiah 1:1-27. Referred to as Black Sabbath due to its status as saddest Shabbat of the year. Begins at sundown on July 20th.
Annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av. The fast commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date. Since this year the 9th of Av falls on Shabbat when the fast can never be observed it is postponed until the 10th of Av. Begins at sundown on July 21st.
Celebrated in Israel as a holiday of love on the 15th of Av (Hebrew: ,חג האהבה Hag HaAhava), similar to Valentine's Day and some say "great day for weddings". Begins at sundown on July 26th.
"Sabbath of comfort/ing takes its name from the haftarah from Isaiah in the Book of Isaiah 40:1-26 that speaks of "comforting" the Jewish people for their suffering. It is the first of seven haftarahs of consolation leading up to Rosh Hashanah. Begins at sundown on July 27th.
