Join Rabbi Shohama and Rabbi David for a soul-opening commemoration of Tisha b’Av, doorway into the High Holy Days.
Tisha b’Av is Judaism’s lowest day, recalling destructions, Jewish exiles and history’s other tragedies. Only as we experience our own darkness can we fully honor the timeless call to forgive and renew.
Our Tisha b’Av commemoration will use music, meditation, prayer and stillness to bottom out in personal and communal loss, and then begin the ascent toward Rosh Hashanah. Hashiveinu Yah eleicha v’nashuvah: chadeish yameinu ke’kedem / “Return us to You, God, and we will be returned: Renew us as in days of old” (Lamentations 5:12).
On Tisha b’Av, many will wear black and avoid jewelry in a posture of mourning. Doors will open at 7:15pm; service will begin at 7:30pm.
