Tisha b’Av lecture in Philly area 4


I will be giving a lecture this Wednesday evening enitled “Have you forgotten us completely?” Crying Out to a Loving God. I will be exploring how the rabbis responded to the destruction of the Temple, how they responded to the text of Lamentations, and what that in turn can teach a community of faith about responding to our own times of crisis. From the Beth Israel website:

Wednesday, July 29:  Beth Israel will be hosting a county wide Tisha B’Av service at 8:00 p.m. in the Holocaust Memorial Garden.  Our guest presenter will be Professor Brady from Penn State.  Professor Brady has degrees in Judaic Studies and Hebrew Literature.  Attendees are asked to bring a flashlight. Open attached flyer.
