Grieving in the Time of COVID-19 and George Floyd


A Tish’ah b’Av Program with Jared Jackon

On Wednesday, July 29 at 8:00 PM, Jared Jackson will lead our Tish’a b’Av program this year, focusing on how Black Jews in our community are feeling regarding the responses towards racial injustice. Jared will help us consider how we, as a community, can better move towards an equitable state of being. Q&A will follow, as well as breakout conversations for processing. The service & reading of Eicha (Lamentations) will follow the program at approximately 9:00 PM.
