TISHA B'AV SERVICE
Saturday, July 25th, evening at 9:00 pm
Join us as we conclude Shabbat together with an inspiring Havdalah service. Then, we will mark this important day in our Jewish history with Tisha B'Av services, including beautifully chanted selections from the Book of Lamentations. There will be a discussion of the poem "On the Slaughter" by Hayyim Nahman Bialik, a major poet of the Hebrew renaissance. Given that Tisha B'Av is a mournful day, it is customary to sit on the floor in the dark for services. Please bring your flashlight so you can follow along. We hope to see you there. We hope to see you there.
