Tisha b’Av, regarded as the saddest day in the Jewish calendar is marking several tragedies in our history. On that day our thoughts are with those whose graves are unmarked and those whose names are long forgotten. Because of Shabbat, the fast starts this year in the evening of 25 July, and ends on Sunday 26 July after sundown. It is a tradition to read Eicha, the book of lamentation on Tisha b’Av. There will be a service of mourning followed by a study session with Rabbi Shaked at Beit Emanuel on 25 July at 18.00.
