Tish’ah Be’Av 2022 – Saturday, August 6 and Sunday, August 7
The members of Temple Israel of Great Neck and Congregation L’Dor V’Dor – Oakland Little Neck Jewish Center will join together to mourn, remember and commemorate.

Everyone is invited to dim their lights and join us in person at Temple Israel and Congregation L’Dor V’Dor, on TIGN Zoom and Congregation L’Dor V’Dor Zoom (check your email or call the office for link) 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.
