Presented by: JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival, YU Torah Mitzion Kollel of Chicago and the Midwest Center for Jewish Learning
Join the JCC Chicago Jewish Film Festival, YU Torah Mitzion Kollel of Chicago and the Midwest Center for Jewish Learning for 4 films commemorating Tisha B’Av.
For over 2,000 years, Jews have commemorated Tisha B’Av (literally the ninth of the month of Av on the Jewish calendar) as a day of national mourning. We focus on the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem, both of which were burned to the ground on this day, but also on the many persecutions and depredations that our people have endured across the millennia, from the Crusades in the Middle Ages through the Holocaust. However, while Tisha B’Av is a day of mourning and reflection, it is also a day where we work to grow bonds of love and fellowship among our fellow Jews (ahavat chinam), and anticipate a future where sorrow and suffering will be replaced with redemption and peace.
