Roots-NY Tisha B’Av Manhattan Beis World Cafe
Tisha B’Av* Manhattan Beis World Cafe!
Join Roots-NY this monday night, on the eve of Tisha B’Av, as we gather to understand the underlying pinnings of hate and the role that anti-semitism has played throughout history and in shaping the Jewish people. Alongside this discussion we will also be holding a memorial for the 56 fallen soldiers of Operation Protective Edge.
Tisha B’Av (literally: the 9th day of the month of Av) is widely held as the most somber day of the Jewish calendar year. It marks the destruction of both Temples, and a remembrance day of many of the tragedies to befall our nation. And while it’s easy to discount anti-semitism as a thing of the past, of a time and era that was far from civilized, the riots and hateful outpour of the international community in the recent days serve as a sobering reminder of its real and tangible existence in our own age.
