Gush Katif Museum: Special Memorial Tisha B'Av Eve


The Museum of Gush Katif and Northern Samaria has scheduled a special memorial evening to accompany the beginning of the Fast of the Ninth of Av, Monday evening. Following the traditional reading of the biblical book of Lamentations, dirges will be recited in memory of the destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem in ancient times and the government's uprooting of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria following Tisha B'Av eight years ago.

Accountant Haim Yo'avi Rabinovich will tell the story of the riots of 1929 (5689 on the Jewish calendar). The museum will stay open until 2:00 a.m.
