When Today's Tisha BeAv Fast Ends, In Kew Gardens Hills

According to the Etz Chaim bulletin, this year, 2008, the Tisha BeAv fast ends in Kew Gardens Hills at 8:44 PM. You can also look up times at the zemanim page (here), which somehow has a slightly earlier time, but I would guess it it is better to trust people who have looked into it by hand.

Also, as I noted in an earlier post, Artscroll makes a free download of kinnos for the Holocaust. As well as some permitted learning for Tisha BeAv -- the Artscroll gemara, in Hebrew and in English, of the story of Kamtza and bar Kamtza.

I don't generally like to pasken online, and I also don't have these answers at my fingertips, so I am pleading the fifth. Bli neder, I will see if I can gather some answers, based on if halachic sources discuss these matters.

I still have a few more posts in Shadal's "Vikuach al Chochmat haKabbalah," but to read what is there, click on the label "Vikuach al Chochmat haKabbalah" on the side, and then after the first X posts, follow the link to "Older Posts" at the bottom of the page.

Kol Tuv,

"after your Shadal series, you might be interested in this:"

thanks. it would make a great followup. I will put it on the queue, and maybe even bump it up. Right now, I want to finish shadal -- I have about a chapter left; reply to Shomer Emunim; and present Mitpachat Sefarim. I think there was another response to Shadal as well, but this one is available online.
