Tish’a b’Av

July 17 @ 9:39 pm - 10:30 pm

Tish’a b’Av – Saturday night, July 17 – Sunday, July 18

There are two major fast days in the Jewish year: Yom Kippur (the joyous, or “white” fast) and Tish’a b’Av (the sad, or “black” fast). This year, Tish’a b’Av begins following Shabbat, July 17.

Join us this Saturday night at 9:30 pm as we usher Shabbat out with (a modified) havdallah, take off our leather shoes, and read the book of Eikhah (Lamentations).

If you would like to chant a portion of the book of Eikhah – anything from a verse or a few to a full chapter – please contact Rabbi Karlin.
