Tish’ah Be’Av 2024 – Monday, August 12 and Tuesday, August 13
Everyone is invited to dim their lights and join us in person to observe Tish’ah Be’av, commemorating the Destruction of the First Temple (in 586 BCE) and the Second Temple (in 70 CE) in Jerusalem, and the exile of the Jewish People.

This solemn day reflects the greatest tragedies of Jewish history (including the Holocaust), but also serves as a reminder that the Jewish tradition of renewal is alive in Israel and in America.
