Emunah in Baltimore. He will speak on the meaning of a selection
of the kinot to be recited that morning. Sitting on the floor of the
sanctuary, in one of traditional signs of mourning, the rabbi will
provide in-depth introductions to the elegies prior to their recitation
The second annual Webcast is intended for those unable to spend

one of the two evening services held over the course of the day — Beth
Ahm on Wednesday, Aug. 6, and B'nai Moshe that Thursday. Morning
services on Thursday will be held separately in each synagogue.
On Tisha b'Av, changes to the usual daily services are made. While tallit
and tefillin are typically worn during Shacharit (morning services), on
Tisha b'Av they are not. "The practice of not wearing [them] is a sign of
intense mourning," Rabbi Pachter said. "At Minchah [afternoon services],
we nevertheless fulfill the obligation to observe these daily mitzvot as well
as recognize our ability for spiritual recovery even in the face of tragedy.
Somewhat analogous is the relationship between a mourner prior to the
funeral and after the funeral."
Some additions and omissions are made to the morning service, with
the "Shir Shel Yom" prayer, normally said in the morning, moved to the
During the joint services, members of both B'nai Moshe and Beth Ahm
will chant from the Book of Eichah (Lamentations). They will also recite
selected creative readings, which Rabbi Pachter said "are taken from a wide
range of sources — from the Bible to modern poetry — and relate to the
prayers and the chapters of Eichah."
Said Rabbi Popky, "We are happy doing this together. On a personal
level, we each get to work with a friend — but in general, we've found
people like working together within the community." 0
