Remembering the Destruction of the Temples
and Jewish Responses to Catastrophe & Exile
Friday, August 9 at 8 p.m.
Tisha b’Av commemorates the destruction of the first and second Temples in Jerusalem, traditionally assigned to those same dates in 586 B.C.E. and 72 C.E., respectively. For Spanish Jewry, the day has an additional significance, since it coincides with the accepted date of the 1492 expulsion edict of the Spanish Inquisition.
The collection of readings includes excerpts from the book of Eicha/Lamentations,
diaries and poetry across time,
and words of song and hope in modern times.
