Tisha B’Av – The Ninth night of Av – is Judaism’s annual commemoration of destruction, exile, persecution and loss. MJH and Lab/Shul invite you for a curated night of performances, guided tours, sacred music, lectures, candlelit contemplation space, and open conversations exploring the power of memory in the healing of collective trauma.
NINE will bring in an impressive list of partner organizations from across New York City, including Masha Gessen, Manny Cantor Center, LABA: A Laboratory for Jewish Culture and many more, filling the museum with programs about Jewish history, literature, liturgy and contemporary culture related to the fast of Tisha B’av, as well as focus on the legacy of loss in the LGBT community, including guided tours of select museum exhibits and programs focused on the exhibit Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945.
