We approach the lowest point on the Jewish liturgical calendar, the holiday that commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples.

But, The L’Chaim Center has a plan for dealing with both COVID-19 and Tisha B’Av called Zoom. Resiliency is our specialty at The L’Chaim Center, which has always worked with worshippers looking for a slightly different, less formal but deeply spiritual approach to Judaism.

Tisha B’Av

The Holiday of Tisha B’Av falls on Wednesday, July 29, the ninth of the Hebrew month of Av.

Seven weeks later, we reach our most-elevated point, Rosh HaShannah.

Please join The L’Chaim Center on this journey from despair to light, as we lift our hearts away from the very real restrictions and forced separations from loved ones, wrought by COVID-19, to focus on the Divine Presence which lives always in our hearts.

In the interests of keeping us all safe and healthy, we’ll journey online together, using Zoom, starting with a Tisha B’Av session at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 29. This event, among others, will include chanting some of the special trope, a striking melody, my favorite.

Think of our Zoom service as streaming Social Distancing.
