We observe Tisha B’Av in prayer and reflection. During the Evening Service for Tisha B’Av we recite the Bible’s Book of Lamentations, Eicha.

Tisha B’Av is our calendar’s date of mourning. On the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av we recall tragic events in Jewish history whose legacy have shaped our identity and values.

Join the Beth El community for a meaningful Tisha B’av service led by Cantor Angress.
