Please join Temple Israel Portsmouth for a Tisha b’Av Gathering in the Temple Israel Courtyard (or indoors in case of rain). At Tisha b’Av, we recall the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem and we grieve for the many losses endured by the Jewish people throughout the ages. The destruction of the Temple also represents a rupture between God and the people and between the people and one another.
Rabba Kaya Stern-Kaufman will lead us in songs, chants and readings, including traditional chanting from the book of Lamentations as we acknowledge both ancient and contemporary “destructions.”
Kindly register via the temple website to receive updates. Bring a flashlight or cellphone and a blanket or chair to sit on.
