Tish'a B'Av

Heaven on Earth: Timeless Vessels, Timely Lessons

Both the first and second Holy Temples which stood in Jerusalem were destroyed on Av 9: the First Temple by the Babylonians in the year 3338 from creation (423 BCE), and the second by the Romans in 3829 (69 CE).

The Temples' destruction represents the greatest tragedy in Jewish history, for it marks our descent into Galut--the state of physical exile and spiritual displacement in which we still find ourselves today. Thus the Destruction is mourned as a tragedy that affects our lives today, 2,000 years later, no less than the very generation that experienced it first hand.

Join us on Thursday evening, July 30 from 7:30pm - 8:30pm, at the Chabad Torah Centre, 1825 Grant Avenue for an evening of learning and discovery, as a panel of Rabbi's present fascinating insights about the various vessels used in the Holy Temple. This program is open to both men and woman, and will be followed by Mincha and Maariv services. For more information, please call 414-5624.

This is a joint project between Chabad Lubavitch and Herzilia Adas Yeshurun.
