Destruction of the Temple at Jerusalem by Nicolas Poussin

Tisha B’Av (the 9th day of the month of Av) memorializes the destruction of Jerusalem and the loss of the ancient Jewish state. Throughout history, other calamities befell the Jewish people on this date, such as the expulsions from England and Spain, numerous pogroms and other atrocities.

In contemporary times, Tisha B’Av became the date (alongside Yom HaShoah) on which we mourn the Holocaust that befell our people, the murders of 6 million. While on this day we grapple with despair as we try to make sense of these horrors, we also seek a vision of hope for the future.

Join us for somber evening services and observations on the significance of this day, followed by the chanting of Eicha/Lamentations in English and Hebrew.

Services will be in-person and on Zoom, led by Rabbi Navah Levine.
