Tisha B’Av - Navigating Loss and Grief during COVID-19:

An Evening of Sharing, Learning, and Meditation

On this night of mourning, a time when we commemorate the losses that have changed Judaism and the Jewish people, we come together to speak of, acknowledge and mourn our losses. Since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have all experienced losses, broken dreams, missed opportunities, and many other things that we mourn, large and small. They are all significant, all impactful and we have felt them as individuals, as a community and a nation.
Please join us for a special Tisha B'Av commemoration 8-9:30 p.m., Wednesday, July 29. Interwoven with Ma'ariv, the evening service, and the reading of Megillat Eicha, the Book of Lamentations, we will acknowledge our individual, communal and national losses. In small groups, we will have a chance to talk about the things we miss and mourn. The event will also include niggunim, kinot (traditional poems and songs of mourning for Tisha B’Av) and meditation.
As part of the ceremony, we will be showing a virtual wall of memory. Please send an email describing in a word or a short sentence a loss that has impacted you this year. Examples are a missed vacation, a missed graduation, the loss of someone you care about, a job lost, a zoom bar/bat mitzvah instead of being there in person, or a cancelled performance. Send your email to  Rachel Goldberg no later than Monday, July 20, to be included in the virtual Wall of Memory presentation.
