Tisha B’Av Ritual: A Lament for Immigrant Detention and Family Separation

Saturday, July 21, 2018 • 9 Av 5778

8:30 PM - 9:30 PMICE Headquarters, 4310 SW Macadam Ave

Led by Rabbi Ariel Stone, Rabbi Debra Kolodny, Rabbinic Intern Davina Bookbinder, and Rabbi Benjamin Barnett. As Jewish tradition tells it, on the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av (Tisha B’Av) our People suffered the destruction of both the First and Second Temples, as well as several other catastrophes. Jews gather each year on this day to commemorate these tragedies, chanting the book of Lamentations and singing mournful yet beautiful melodies. In response to the catastrophes being perpetrated right now upon thousands of individuals and families entering our country, we will gather in front of ICE headquarters for prayer, reflection, and ritual, opening our hearts to this current destruction, and turning our spirits toward insuring safety and dignity for all who enter this land. Please note: SW Bancroft is closed by DHS at Macadam, so the easiest way to the site is to enter the south waterfront from the north end, off Naito.
