Tisha b’Av Gathering Monday, August 12

Please join us at 8:00 pm for a Tisha b’Av Gathering in the Temple Israel Chapel. On the fast day of Tisha b’Av (the ninth day of the Hebrew month Av), we recall the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and we grieve for the many losses endured by the Jewish people throughout the ages and through to this very moment.

In commemoration of Tisha b’Av, Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman will lead us in songs and readings, including chanting from the book of Lamentations as we come together in community to find strength in our collective grief.

It is customary to sit on the floor/ground and read these texts by candlelight. Please bring a flashlight or cell phone and a cushion to sit upon. Chairs will also be available for anyone who prefers. Kindly register to receive updates.

This program is also available via Zoom, using the regular link for services found in every Friday bulletin.
