On the 10th of Teves of the year 3336 from Creation (425 BCE), the armies of the Babylonian emperor Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Jerusalem. Thirty months later - on Tammuz 9, 3338 - the city walls were breached, and on the 9th of Av of that year, the Holy Temple was destroyed. The Jewish people were exiled to Babylonia for 70 years.
