Tisha B’Av

 The saddest day in the Jewish calendar, Tisha B’Av commemorates the destruction of both Temples in Jerusalem, in 586 BCE by the Babylonians and 70 CE by the Romans. The fast on this day begins the night before, and like with the fast on Yom Kippur we also do not bathe or wear leather shoes.

Fast begins at 8:09 PM

 Ma’ariv and chanting of Eicha, the Book of Lamentations 8:00 PM

 Join us as we gather for a meaningful commemoration of this solemn day with a special outdoor evening service (weather permitting).

 Please bring a flashlight as the service will be conducted in low light
