Tisha B’Av: Ancient + Modern Lamentations

07/29/2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm CDT

Get ready to pull out your blankets and candles for Tisha B’Av, the most solemn day on the Jewish calendar. This year, as we dwell in uncertainty, we will do our traditional reading of Lamentations, with modern poetry added to the mix. Featuring the work of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color), Queer, and Jewish poets — as well as original poetry from Mishkanites — this night will offer space for communal reflection about our past and our present. Submit your poetry suggestions, and/or original work here.

To learn more about Tisha B’Av, listen to Mishkan’s latest podcast episode with R’Benay Lappe.

Mishkan will be making a donation to Brave Space Alliance in gratitude to the authors we read.
