Congregation Beth David and Congregation Sinai join together for an evening of communal mourning with the chanting of Eicha (Lamentations).

Tisha B’Av is a fast day that commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples. It has also become a day of general mourning for other major disasters that have befallen the Jewish people, from the Edict of the Expulsion from England in 1290 to the mass deportation of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto.

It is customary to not wear leather and to sit low to the ground.
