Tisha B’Av for Asylum

July 26, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

Join JCUA in a special Tisha B’Av event at Beth Emet. Tisha B’Av is an annual fast day commemorating moments of tragedy throughout Jewish history, including the destruction of both temples and scattering of the Jewish people. Before we enter this day set aside for grief, join JCUA for a pre-fast meal and learning in community. We’ll do a teach in on the U.S. asylum system, the forces that drive people to flee their homes, and a text study on exile. We will also be collecting supplies for asylum seekers in Chicago; please bring diapers of all sizes and new underwear and socks for children and adults.
