Tishah B’Av Service

Thu, Jul 27, 2023 • 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM


Tishah B’Av, observed on the ninth of Av, is considered to be the saddest day on the Jewish calendar. Although the holiday traditionally commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples, Reform Judaism observes the date in memory of tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people, in particular, we mourn the 6,000,000 Jews who perished in the Holocaust. We read the Book of Lamentations and consider how we can contribute to tikkun olam, an opportunity to fulfill Judaism’s mission of being “a light unto the nations.”

Join us as we explore the deeper meanings of the day, reflect on loss, and turn in prayer toward a season of hope and renewal.
