Tisha B'Av with Kavana

  • Saturday, August 10, 2019
  • 8:45 PM
  • A park in Queen Anne


Registration is closed

Kavana partners and community members are invited to gather to observe Tisha B'Av, the saddest day of the Jewish year, with chanting/reading of the Book of Lamentations (Eichah) and a discussion of the day's resonances in our lives and times. Eichah's hauntingly beautiful melody, its story of dispossession and anguish, and the rituals surrounding Tisha B'Av make this a moving way to mourn together for the pain of the world, both ancient and current. Whether you know how to chant Eichah or have never participated in a communal mourning ritual like Tisha B'Av, it can be a powerful experience. We'll begin by marking the transition from Shabbat to Tisha B'Av.

If you would like to read/chant a portion of Lamentations in Hebrew, please email Rabbi Josh at rabbijosh@kavana.org. There will be opportunities that evening to read portions in English for those who would like to.
