Join Urban Adamah and Kehilla Community Synagogue for an evening of prayer, reckoning, and mourning in commemoration of Tisha B’Av. On Tisha B’Av, we are called to read Megillat Eicha, the scroll of Lamentations, which recounts the heart breaking experience of losing one’s home.
The foundation of the United States rests on two awful forced erasures of home — the wrenching of Africans from their homes to serve as slaves in America, and the theft and transformation of Indigenous homeland into a place beyond recognition. Reckoning with clear eyes these centuries long and ongoing injustices is a painful and necessary process. What is possible if we choose to not look away?
A portion of this program will include some chanting of Megillat Eicha, but not a full rendering of the text.
