Tisha B’Av Service

Monday, July 31, 2017 – 8:30-9:45pm

The  Traditional Brief and Meager “Meal of Separation”
followed byCandlelight ​Tisha b’Av Service ​with
Rabbi Goldie Milgram and Leyners

Tisha B’Av reveals something believed to be inseparable that became separated. The Meal of Separation consists of a glass of water, a piece of bread, and hard-boiled egg dipped in ashes​ and is a traditional prelude to this day of mourning​,​and fasting ​for those who are able. We will continue with this day’s traditions within the Jewish cycle of spiritual healing with a contemplative ​​service by candle light ​which includes chanting of Eichah, the Book of Lamentations​.
​Suggestions: ​Fasting? Have your regular dinner before arriving​. Bring something for sitting upon the floor​ and a flashlight to read by. Dress simply.
Chairs will be available for those who need them.
CoSponsors: Chochmat HaLev & Kehilla Community Synagogue
