Establishing days of mourning other than Tisha b'Av


"The kinot of Rabbi Kalonymus state that it would have been appropriate to establish a fast for the decrees and destructions which have passed over us [since the destruction of the first Beit haMikdash], but the day of the Destruction includes all destructions. As Yeshayah 51:3 says, 'For He has comforted Zion, He has comforted all of her ruins.'"

(Rabbi Moshe Sofer, Torat Moshe II, Vayechi)

Have a good day,
