Erev Tish'ah b'Av Program featuring Kathryn Hellerstein

Jewish Poems Against Destruction

Tisha'ah b'Av program with

Dr. Kathryn Hellerstein

Monday, August 4 at 8 PM 


The Jewish people are no strangers to destruction.  From the khurbn (destruction) of the First Temple and, later, the Second Temple,
through the Crusades, the pogroms, and the Holocaust, Jews have
responded in poetry.  We will read and discuss several poems that
respond to devastating events in different periods of Jewish history in
order to contextualize the laments and prayers in the Tish'ah b'Av
service that follows.
