Monday, August 4th Teaneck Women’s Tefillah is holding its reading of Megillat Eicha for Tisha B’Av on Monday August 4, 2014 at 10 PM. For information about the location, email [email protected].

Jewish Center of Teaneck 7:50PM Tisha B’Av Service 70 Sterling Place Following the service a film produced by the Jerusalem based Ma’aleh School of Television, Film and the Arts – “A Strength to Tell” will be shown. The film follows a group of Jerusalem teenagers who are victims of broken homes and shattered lives. Participating in Martef, a therapeutic program for at-risk teens, they interview surviving witnesses of the 1961 Eichmann trial, then create a play based on the survivors’ stories. The young actors and the aging survivors, connected by shared pain and loss, develop bonds of empathy and understanding. Following the screening of the film Rabbi Lawrence Zierler will lead a discussion of the issues raised by the film which will focus on rebuilding after destruction, passing on history and heritage to the next generation and the Holocaust and today’s youth.
