Shabbat Hazon Morning Service
Jahrzeit: Isaac Blumenstein, Grand Rabbi of Luxembourg (10 Av-7 Aug)

The 9th of Av – Tisha be Av is a day of remembrance for the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple, traditionally a day of sorrow and, at the same time, of hope. This year we invite you to a special Shabbat Morning Service on Shabbat Hazon (the Sabbath of Vision), Shabbat preceding Tisha be Av at the former synagogue of Mondorf. By gathering and praying in the former synagogue of Mondorf we would like to show the presence and resilience of Jewish life and honor this place of prayer and study for several generations of Luxembourgish and European Jews before the Shoah. I encourage you to join us on this special occasion. 
The service will be followed by a kiddush and a talk by a historian Daniel Thilman about the history of the synagogue. 
This service is organized together with the association “Les amis de l‘ancienne synagogue de Mondorf”.
