Tisha B'Av - Displacement and Genocide

Saturday, July 21, 8:00pm



The 9th of the month of Av (Tisha B'Av) is a fast day which marks the gateway into the High Holy Day season as we recall the destruction of the Temple with mournful melodies and the devastating text of the Book of Lamentations.  Join us as we break open our hearts with music, poetry and silence, coming together to face what is broken, and beginning the process of transformation which is both the call of the season and the need of our time.
