How Desolate Lie Our Borders: A Tisha B’Av Vigil @ pin Jerome Combs Detention Center
Aug 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

JCUA along with a coalition of Jewish and local immigrant justice organizations hold a special vigil to acknowledge the immense human tragedy currently unfolding at our southern border, through the lens and rituals of Tisha b’Av.

Tisha B’Av (the ninth of the Hebrew month of Av) is a Jewish fast day that honors and mourns the brokenness, loss, and shattered ideals in whose shadow we live every day, symbolized by the destruction of Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. The vigil will include selections from Eikha (the Biblical Book of Lamentations) alongside contemporary reflections, immigrant testimony, poetry, song and calls to action.

RSVP here.
