Tisha B’Av 

Tisha B’Av (the 9th of Av) was the date that both the first and second Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed and the exile of the Jewish People began. We fast to commemorate this national tragedy, and we read the book of Eicha (Lamentations), attributed to the prophet Jeremiah.

Join us by Zoom to hear Cantor Simon chant the book of Eicha with short explanations from Aliza. Words will be on the screen for you to follow along.
