Minchah Maariv-Asar B’Tammuz-2019 (observed)

Cohen Chapel

The fast day of Shivah-Asar B’Tammuz (the 17th day of Tammuz) commemorates calamities in Jewish history, according to Mishnah Ta’anit chapter 4, among them the breaking of the first set of tablets and the breaching of Jerusalem’s walls by the Babylonians.  The fast for Shivah-Asar B'Tammuz is observed from dawn to nightfall. Minchah will be at 8:00 pm, and will include the fast-day Torah and Haftarah readings. Arvit will follow. We will need six people present and fasting to have the Torah and Haftarah readings at Minchah. If you know that you will be fasting and can attend Minchah that day, please contact Richard Friedman at frieraph1 [at] verizon [dot] net
