Exploring Dignity: Tisha B’Av, Senseless Hatred & Destruction

“Senseless hatred” is a Rabbinic term used to describe a powerfully harmful impediment to truly serving each other. Jewish tradition teaches that one of the reasons the ancient Temple was destroyed on Tisha B’Av is because of “senseless hatred” within the Jewish community. Beth Huppin, Director of Project Kavod/Dignity, will lead this text-based discussion about the contemporary connections between the work of JFS and the lessons of Tisha B’Av. Snacks and bagels will be served.
