Adult Education - TISHA B’AV – Jewish Day of National Mourning

Wednesdays 7:30pm, May 25, June 8. The 9th of the month of Av is the saddest day of the Jewish year.  It has been observed as such for over 2,000 years, yet it is not well understood.  In these two sessions we will consider not just the ‘how-to’ facets of the day, but the ‘why.’  Additionally, we will carefully study Sefer Eichah, the Book of Lamentations, our national song of sadness. Instructor: Rabbi Kalender
