Al Inyanei D'Yoma

Since tomorrow night is Tish'a B'av but also Motzei Shabbos, two halachic novelties are presented:
  1. It's the only time you get to eat meat as a last meal before the fast.
  2. It's probably the only time you'll be davening ma'ariv on Motzei Shabbos in your weekday clothes.
1 -- Because since there's no seudah hamafsekes and your last meal is the Shabbos meal of Shalosh Seudos, you can eat anything you'd normally eat on Shabbos, including meat and wine.

2 -- Because we generally don't wear Shabbos clothing on Tish'a B'av we go home to eat Shalosh Seudos. Once Shabbos is over, we say "Baruch hamavdil bein kodesh l'chol" and then change into non-leather shoes and non-Shabbos clothing. We then walk back to shul for ma'ariv and Eicha.

I've added pictures from Wednesday's tefila gathering at the Kotel -- they're awe-inspiring.

For those of you in the New York metro area, here's a list of shiurim that will be given at Ateres Chynka (129 Elmwood Avenue, Brooklyn, NY):
