Tisha B’Av Statewide Services
July 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
This Wednesday evening, join us and the Center for Small Town Jewish Life and Jewish Community Alliance as we commemorate Tisha B’Av. This observance reminds us of the baseless hatred that led to the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem.

Our Northern Maine educator and resident Holocaust expert, Erica Nadelhaft, will speak about our efforts to combat hatred in Maine. You will get to see and hear about art from the WALLS exhibit, which we hope to bring to the Michael Klahr Center next summer, 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 p.m. for a chanting of the Book of Lamentations led by the Center for Small Town Jewish Life. Advance registration is required. All are welcome.
