“Let us search and examine our ways and return to the Eternal One!”
— Lamentations 3:40
Tisha B’Av is the starting point for preparing for the High Holy Days. It begins the process of repentance.
Join Rabbi Thomas Louchheim, Cantor Janece Cohen, Rabbi Batsheva Appel, and Cantorial Soloist Marjorie Hochberg, along with the members of the Congregation Or Chadash Yad Squad and Temple Emanu-El’s Project Ezra, for a moving service commemorating the many tragedies throughout Jewish history that occurred on the 9th of Av.
We will sit on the floor of the sanctuary without shoes on, as a sign of mourning, and chant passages from Eichah, the book of Lamentations.
