Spirit of the Year, Class 11 (Tisha b’Av)
Join Reb David for our monthly exploration of the spiritual and mystical underpinnings of the Jewish holiday cycle. This month we explore Tisha b’Av, the deepest day of mourning in the Jewish year. What historical and mythic events does Tisha b’Av commemorate? Spiritually speaking, why have such a day? Why re-live grief? How does Tisha b’Av slingshot into Tu b’Av, a day of love and joy? How does Tisha b’Av prepare us for the High Holy Day season of repentance and renewal? Dessert reception to follow.
