Join us for Tisha B’Av

Tisha B'Av, the ninth day of the month of Av, commemorates the destruction of the two Temples in Jerusalem, as well as many other calamities that have befallen the Jewish people.  We read Eicha (the Book of Lamentations) in a setting reminiscent of sitting shiva, along with a short service and the singing of kinot, or elegies, sad songs about our misfortunes over time.

Fabrangen will hold services from 8:00 - 10 p.m. on August 4, 2014 at the Washington Ethical Society Building. We look forward to seeing you there.

Fablog: The Three Weeks

Join us in preparing for Tisha B'Av with meditations, poems, writings, and remembrances at Fablog: The Three Weeks.

High Holidays Reflections

“My first contact with Fabrangen, as it was for many people, was at High Holiday services . . . My main memory of that Rosh Hashanah was that one of the leaders in the participatory service was a person who sang with gusto but for whom carrying a tune was clearly too heavy a burden. I looked around; no one seemed to notice; the crowd was wholeheartedly singing along. Then gradually it came to me: if this energetic but tuneless person could stand on the bimah and be accepted, even encouraged by this congregation, then maybe there was room for me too – a young woman whose feelings about Judaism were not always “in tune” but who was searching to be part of a community of equals. It’s [30] years later, and Fabrangen has never let me down on that score.” – Anne-Marie D.
