Tisha b’Av commemorates the destruction of the first and second Temples. In keeping with the theme of mourning losses the Jewish people have suffered, at the Havurah we read by candlelight or flashlight, don't greet each other before or after the service, and those who are able to sit on the floor. In addition to chanting Eicha (Lamentations) we sing mournful songs. Although sad, it can be a powerful experience and we hope you'll join us.

A block or two east on College, there's a Seventh Day Adventist Church, with the main sign entirely in French, but on a side door is taped up a sign in English saying something like "use other door, Sion Church". Anyone here know what's up with it? Do we have an active French Adventist community in the area? What's the history?

This week's print edition of The Somerville News Weekly, a local alleged newspaper, has Happy Easter & Happy Passover as its main above-the-fold headline. Nobody there bothered to learn that Passover starts a month later than Easter this year, on the evening of April 22.

The wittiest spiel for blocks around, homemade hamantashen, groggers, the whole Magilla - Havurat Shalom's Purim party is great fun and you are warmly invited to join us! We're providing a pizza and salad dinner. And of course, there'll be spiel between reading chapters of the Book of Esther. Costumes encouraged, but not required.

Havurat Shalom is a small, lay-led, egalitarian Jewish community. We include folks with a wide range of Jewish backgrounds and practices.

NB: we regret that due to a flood, the wheelchair ramp and 1st floor bathroom will not be in service during Purim. There is a bathroom on the 2nd floor.

I was driving past Trum field, and I _think_ that I saw a sign advertizing a gyros and loukamades fundraiser on May 3rd at the Dormition of the Virgin Mary Greek Church in Somerville (the one that has the great food festival in September). However, I couldn't really check the details cause I was driving, and haven't been able to find internet confirmation of this event. Does anyone know if I saw that right? And if so, hours? If no one happens to know off hand, I'll make a trip back past Trum field some time to check the banner.
Thanks!

Unity Somerville has just let me know that they've fallen behind on their oil bill by a couple thousand dollars and are soliciting contributions to help them catch up. I know that this is in part because of the very low rent they charge Theatre@First and other community groups for the use of their space. I've chosen to help them, in thanks for what they offer our wider community. If you'd like to do the same, please visit their website and click on "Contribute". You can earmark your donation specifically for the oil bill.

On Shabbat, December 7th, 2013, over a hundred Jewish communities throughout North America will be gathering for the sixth annual Human Rights Shabbat, an initiative of T'ruah (formerly Rabbis for Human Rights), to educate about and advocate for the Jewish value of universal human rights. Havurat Shalom will host a special study session after Shabbat services and a potluck lunch, to affirm and confirm our community's commitment to fighting for human rights. We hope you'll join us!
