Pre-Tisha b’Av Learning: Jews Do Cry

Pre-Tisha b’Av Learning: Jews Do Cry
Sat | Aug 10 | 8:00 pm | Rabbinic Intern Viktoria Bedo
Welcome our new rabbinic intern to PAS and learn with her as we move from the joy of Shabbat to the somber hours of Tisha b’Av. The book we read on Tisha b’Av, Eikhah, Lamentations, makes much mention of mourning and shedding tears. Through hevruta (studying in pairs) and group discussion, we will explore the motif of crying in the Hebrew Bible and other Jewish sources, as well as beyond our canon. What has brought tears to our people’s eyes in the past millennia? What compels humans to cry? What emotions does crying express?
