Tishah B’Av After #MeToo: Moving Through Trauma Towards Justice with Student Rabbi Hannah Elkin

Tishah B’Av, the holiday that commemorates the destruction of the ancient Temples in Jerusalem and other tragedies in Jewish history, can seem removed from our modern lives. Our ancient texts and rituals speak to the themes of trauma and injustice. Join us for a creative havdalah and evening service, followed by a learning session on the Book of Lamentations, the scroll that is traditionally read on Tishah B’Av. Together we will learn about Lamentations through the perspective of the #MeToo Movement, exploring gender, violence, and power as we discover the ways this ancient text can teach us about healing and justice in the wake of abuse.

Please contact Chioma Alexis, Clergy Assistant with any questions.
