Kabbalat Shabbat Services
August 12, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Tisha B’Av is a time of grief, yet ironically, Judaism uses that grief as the foundation for the next round of hope and healing. Our amazing calendar provides us a safe ‘container’ through which we can experience loss and the potent literature of lament. Through this, we find the strength to begin our journey to the month of Elul, and our preparation for the Holy Days.
The observance of Tisha B’av begins with Shabbat Chazon, on Saturday August 13 in our Shabbat morning service, where we will reflect on the meaning of the time of mourning for Tisha B’av.
Please join us for the evening service and recitation of Lamentations, and an engaging text study, exploring the historical and contemporary meaning of Jewish pain and suffering, with visiting Cantor Heather Batchelor leading our singing and the chanting of Lamentations/Aichah on Saturday evening, August 13, at 8:00 pm.
Cantor Heather will also be here to co-lead our Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat on August 12.
You won’t want to miss the singing!
