Touching the Tisha B'Av Tragedies:  A Kinot Journey Through Jewish History 

Join Rabbi Ari Perl for shacharit followed by 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.

We will be broadcasting the morning program on the Torah in Motion Facebook page. Kinnot explanations begin at 9:10am

Afternoon Program:

12:50 pm: Shaarei Shomayim Congregation, 470 Glencairn Ave., Toronto. 

Who Will Write Our History, the story of a group of spiritual resistors who risked their lives so that the truth would survive, even if they did not. In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decides to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vows to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda, not with guns or fists but with pen and paper.
