Community Tisha B'Av Service at Temple Sinai

Saturday, August 6, 2022 9 Av 5782

9:00 PM - 10:30 PMLeebov Sanctuary

This year, Temple Sinai will host the community's evening Tisha B'Av service to commemorate the destruction of both Temples in Jerusalem in 586 BCE and 70 CE.


Ma’ariv will be at 9 PM, followed immediately by the Tisha B'Av service, including the Book of Lamentations (Eykhah). (You are encouraged to bring your own flashlight for Eykhah.) 


Tishah B'Av, observed on the 9th (tishah) of the Hebrew month of Av, is a day of mourning the destruction of both ancient Temples in Jerusalem. Liberal Judaism never has assigned a central religious role to the ancient Temple, so mourning the destruction of the Temple may not be particularly meaningful to liberal Jews. In modern times, many Jews understand Tishah B'Av as a day to remember many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people throughout history, and to reflect on the suffering that still occurs in our world.
