Pastoral Letter – Tisha B’Av and the 100th Anniversary of World War One

August 4, 2014

Rabbi Danny Rich, Chief Executive of Liberal Judaism, has written a pastoral letter that he has asked us to share with all members of Liberal Jewish communities.  The letter reflects on the fact that this year Tisha B’Av falls on the 100th anniversary of Britain’s entry into what will become known as the First World War.  In doing so the letter also reflects on current events in Israel and Gaza.

You can read the full text of the letter here:
