Tisha B’av, the 9th day of the month of Av, is a day of national mourning and a fast day.

It is a day upon which we commemorate the challenge of tragedy in Jewish history, the memory of the destruction of the Temples, exile, major disasters that have befallen the Jewish people, from the Edict of Expulsion from England in 1290 to the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto.

On Tisha B’av, Sunday, July 26 at 8:30am, we will have a special Minyan service, including reading from the Book of Lamentations (Eicha) and study.
