Ethiopian Jews didn't know the Second Temple had been destroyed.

THAT MUST HAVE BEEN A SHOCK: We did not know: How Ethiopian Jews discovered the Second Temple was gone. We Ethiopian Jews simply had no idea that God's holy site on earth was gone -- and we are bereft (Michal Avera Samuel, Times of Israel Blog).

By the way, more or less related, the Ninth of Av (Tisha B'Av), which commemorated the loss of both Temple etc., starts tomorrow at sunset.
