EREV TISHA B'AV SERVICE AND STUDY SESSION

Monday 31 July, 8.00 pm - 10.00 pm

Please join us for Eve of Fast Day Tisha B'Av - the Ninth of Av for a study session followed by a short service.  Our service will include chanting of Book of Echa.

Tisha b'Av, the ninth of the month of Av, is the most important day of mourning and fasting in Judaism. It commemorates the destruction of the Temple thousands of years ago - and other tragedies in Jewish history. As in previous years, we will have a study session exploring the meaning of the occasion and its customs, followed by a service centring on the book of Lamentations (Echa), the traditional scroll of Tisha b'Av.  Candle-light is traditional - and it's customary to sit on the floor - so please bring a cushion if you can.
