Please join us for our Tisha B’Av evening service on Monday, July 31, 2017 at 8:00 PM at Oseh Shalom. Tisha B’Av commemorates the destruction of the first and second temples in Jerusalem and the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. This year we will again have a joint service with members of Columbia Jewish Congregation.
A central part of the service is reading from the Book of Lamentations, or Eicha. The chanting of Eicha is beautiful and moving. As in past years, we invite members of our congregations to participate by chanting a part of Eicha in Hebrew or English. Please email Lou Spevack if you’d like to participate by reading or chanting Eicha.
