Join the Holocaust and Human Rights Center, the Center for Small Town Jewish Life and the JCA as we commemorate Tisha B’Av – the Fast of the Ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av. This observance reminds us of the baseless hatred that led to the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem.

We will hear from the HHRC about their efforts to combat hatred in Maine, see and hear about art from the WALLS exhibit sponsored by the HHRC, and join in prayer and poetry commemorating ancient tragedies and acknowledging recent and present-day suffering.

After a brief break, we’ll reconvene around 8:40 PM for a chanting of Eicha – the Book of Lamentations. Advance registration is required. All are welcome.
