Tisha B’Av (Hebrew: תשעה באב or ט׳ באב, "the Ninth of Av,") is an annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar. The fast commemorates the destruction of both the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date. Tisha B’Av is never observed on Shabbat. If the 9th of Av falls on a Saturday, the fast is postponed until the 10th of Av.

Pinchas opens with God’s promise of a “covenant of peace” for the zealot Pinchas, followed by a census. The daughters of Tzelofchad request and receive new laws regarding inheritance. God instructs Moses to prepare Joshua for leadership, and God describes sacrifices brought daily and on special occasions.

Devarim (“Words”) is the first Torah portion in the Book of Deuteronomy, the final book of the Torah. In it, Moses recounts events from the Israelites’ travels in the desert, like the appointment of judges, the sin of the spies, and the wars with the Emorite kings Sihon and Og.

FROM THE DESK OF RABBI STEVEN ROSENBERG

We were all deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Robert Fey, z”l. Our profound condolences go out to his wife Cheryl and their children, Julie (Scott), Robin (Carlos) and their entire family. Bob’s love for Temple Isaiah and the Jewish community was enormous. His generous and giving spirit was deeply ingrained within the wonderful person that Bob was. 

To many, he was a friend, a builder, philanthropist and visionary. But most of all, Bob was simply a mensch. 

May his memory always be for a blessing. 

Please join us Friday night, August 6th at 7:30pm for Shabbat followed by an Oneg, sponsored by the Temple and Sisterhood in loving memory of Robert Fey, z”l. Dr. Sarah Sela joins me on the bima, as our cantorial soloist, along with pianist Joel Baker.

My Friday Night Topic will be:

On Devarim:

“Our Words Matter, Our Deeds Matter, for that is what creates our Legacy.”

Our wine and cheese Shabbat Happy Hour begins on Friday night at 7:00pm. 

Nosh and Drash Torah Study begins at 10:00am this Saturday morning, August 7th, followed by joyous Shabbat services. Join us as we study and discuss parashat Devarim. 

Tisha B’Av (Hebrew: תשעה באב or ט׳ באב, "the Ninth of Av,") is an annual fast day in Judaism, named for the ninth day (Tisha) of the month of Av in the Hebrew calendar. The fast commemorates the destruction of both the First Temple and Second Temple in Jerusalem, which occurred about 655 years apart, but on the same Hebrew calendar date. Tisha B’Av is never observed on Shabbat. If the 9th of Av falls on a Saturday, the fast is postponed until the 10th of Av. 

This year, our Tisha B’Av observance, where we read from the book of Lamentations, will take place via Zoom on Saturday night, August 6th at 8:30pm. 

Our High Holiday planning is underway! If you would like to participate in either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur services, please get in contact with me. It would be wonderful to have more guest readings this year and other honors as well. 

It is indeed our community that sustains and nourishes us. Let us continue to be there for each other both in times of joy and sorrow. Now, more than ever, as we have safely opened our Temple to in-person services and events, let’s make every effort to be present and engaged, for that is how we keep our congregation strong a

We continue to wish Doug Refuah Shelaymah, may God bless him with strength and health, both of body and spirit. 

We are blessed with such a special community here at Temple Isaiah, may we continue to be the vital Center for Jewish Life throughout the Coachella Valley for many years to come. 

I am always available, if you would just would like to visit for a while, either in person or by phone, video chat or text/email. Please feel free to get in touch with me. 

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Steven Rosenberg
