Tisha B’av Services and Programs

July 17, 2021 - July 18, 2021    
7:30 pm

Tisha B’av begins Saturday evening, July 17th. Because both our rabbis are on vacation, and CJC and Mishkan Torah aren’t holding Tisha B’av services, Oseh won’t be holding a Tisha B’av service  this year.

Next year Tisha B’av will be back at Oseh and better than ever, God willing with our new Cantor helping to officiate.

If you do wish to virtually attend a Tisha B’av service this year, here are a few suggestions:

Adat Shalom (Rockville) Email help@adatshalom.net for the Zoom link.

Tikvat Israel (Rockville)

Anshe Chesed (NYC)

Bnai Jeshurun (NYC)

In addition, Reconstructing Judaism will be holding a Tisha B’av Day of Learning and study on Sunday the 18th beginning at 12:00 AM.

(This class is part of a larger series of Recon classes; hence the class at 11:00 AM.)

There is no cost for the class but voluntary donations are encouraged.
