Erev Tish B'Av Zoom Experience
with the Jewish Yoga School
Wednesday, July 29 at 7 p.m.
Tisha B’Av, the 9th of the Hebrew month of Av, commemorates the destruction of the 1st and 2nd Temples in Jerusalem. This holiday has come to memorialize not only Jewish persecution throughout the ages but the brokenness of our world at large.
In these times of upheaval and uncertainty, the themes of Tisha B'Av are relevant to us all. While Tisha B’Av focuses on destruction it creates -as well- an opening for renewal and rebirth.

Our Tisha B'Av yin-style, slow yoga practice will provide the container for us to reflect (privately) upon our personal and communal experiences of grief, brokenness, and exile. We will emerge with greater sensitivity and resilience.

This practice is appropriate for all ages and abilities.
This event is free and open to the entire community.
Meet Cantor Adam Davis
Friday, July 31 | 6:15-6:45 p.m.
