Tisha B’Av

Each summer, we observe Tisha b’Av, the commemoration of the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, together as a community with our sister synagogue, Ahavas Sholom, the only remaining synagogue in Newark.

At our evening services, we chant the haunting melodies of the Book of Eicha (Lamentations) by (electric) candlelight. Our morning services include Torah, Haftarah and Eicha again, with prayers chanted in mournful melodies.
