Tisha B'Av

Join us for worship on Monday, August 4th, 8:30 p.m. at Beth Shalom.

"On the Ninth of Av it was decreed on our fathers that they would not enter the Land (of Israel) [(BaMidbar (Numbers) 14], the Temple was destroyed [both] the first time and the second time, Beitar (the stronghold of the Bar Kochba rebellion) was captured, and the city (of Jerusalem) was plowed under." Talmud Taanit 4

A community Tisha B’Av observance sponsored by the Rabbinic Association of Greater Kansas City will take place on Monday evening, August 4th, at Congregation Beth Shalom, 14200 Lamar Avenue, Overland Park.  Ma’ariv will begin at 8:30 p.m., followed by the reading of Eicha.  This is a meaningful service with beautiful, mournful melodies, some engaging teaching, and a time for communal reflection on both painful times of our past and hope for our future
