The Asara b’Teves Program, Shivah Asar b’Tamuz Program and Tishah b’Av Program have provided inspiration and education for the community for over thirty-five years. The major themes of these programs focus on the importance of mourning over the churban Beis Hamikdash, appreciating the magnitude of its loss and understand how it directly relates to us today. These programs have transformed these fast days into an uplifting spiritual experience for all participants.
