Shabbat Chazon / שַׁבָּת חֲזוֹן
Shabbat Chazon (Shabbat before Tish'a B'Av (Shabbat of Prophecy/Shabbat of Vision)) for Hebrew Year 5781 begins at sundown on and ends at nightfall on .
Shabbat Chazon ("Sabbath [of] vision" שבת חזון) takes its name from the Haftarah that is read on the Shabbat immediately prior to the mournful fast of Tisha B'Av, from the words of rebuke and doom coming from Isaiah in the Book of Isaiah 1:1-27. It is also referred to as the Black Sabbath due to its status as the saddest Shabbat of the year (as opposed to the White Sabbath, Shabbat Shuvah, immediately precededing Yom Kippur).
