Touching the Tisha B'Av Tragedies:  A Kinot Journey through Jewish History. Join Rabbi Ari Perl for a participatory journey through Jewish history, using historical readings to "relive" some of the most calamitous events of the past 2,000 years.  After "experiencing" each tragedy, a Kinah (poem of lament) written in response to that specific tragedy will be read responsively, in a way that captures its full emotional impact.
