The Jewish Climate Action Network-MA (JCAN-MA) invites the community to gather in observation of the tragic days of destruction written in the ancient biblical chapters of Lamentations. As the sun sets, Rabbi Katy Allen and Rabbi Alison Adler will lead the reading of the description of the utter catastrophic disaster that befell the city of Jerusalem, its women, children, animals; its buildings, its gates and walls.

Recalling these ancient stories throughout the centuries, Jews have assembled to mourn together. Today, when climate chaos creates havoc and war destroys lives and resources, JCAN-MA wishes to gather together, pause, and bring to mind the fearful destruction all over the world today. It is not only that particular time and place that desolation descended so thoroughly on a community. It is not only 3,000 years ago that cities have been destroyed. It is here and now! These ancient and anguished words of poetry can deepen our resolve to commit more deeply to our part in avoiding and repairing human and environmental damage everywhere.

Bring a candle. We will take turns reading.
