B"H - Q. Is Tisha b'Av obligatory and can one work?
- A: The short answer is yes and yes, Tisha B'Av is not a yom tov (holiday) it is a public fast day. Let me mention here that for those of us who don't recognize the various secular memorial days and Zionist Yom HaShoa in Israel, this is the proper day on the Jewish calendar to memorialize the Six Million perished, may their souls be blessed in eternity!
