Tisha B’Av (the 9th of the Jewish month of Av) is a fast day that commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples. It has also become a general day of mourning for other major disasters that have befallen the Jewish People, from the Edict of Expulsion from England in 1290 to the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto.
CJC, Oseh Shalom and Mishkan Torah will come together for this special service.
Together we will chant, sing, tell stories and pray as we explore the meaning of the loss of our ancient homeland and the role of the modern State of Israel in our own lives.
Mourning has the potential to lead to reflection and growth. Collective memory strengthens our bond as a community.
