Unlocking our Pain

_

Tisha B'Av with Jewish Futures






About Our Programme

Tisha B’Av. A day of tragedy. A day of memory. A day of pain.

Tisha B’Av poses a peculiar paradox: As a day of national mourning, there is a custom to avoid greeting one another or engaging in unnecessary conversation. And yet, it is also a day when we come together as a community and share each other’s pain. The Book of Eicha and poetic compositions known as Kinnot are the literary expressions of that pain. We take the opportunity to explore the deeper messages of the Kinnot.
