Shabbat Chazon 2022 / שַׁבָּת חֲזוֹן 5782

Shabbat before Tish’a B’Av (Shabbat of Prophecy/Shabbat of Vision) 🕍

Shabbat Chazon for Hebrew Year 5782 begins at sundown on Friday, 5 August 2022 and ends at nightfall on Saturday, 6 August 2022. This corresponds to Parashat Devarim.

Shabbat Chazon ("Sabbath [of] vision" שבת חזון) takes its name from the Haftarah that is read on the Shabbat immediately prior to the mournful fast of Tisha B’Av, from the words of rebuke and doom coming from Isaiah in the Book of Isaiah 1:1-27. It is also referred to as the Black Sabbath due to its status as the saddest Shabbat of the year (as opposed to the White Sabbath, Shabbat Shuvah, immediately precededing Yom Kippur).

Hebrew School at Temple Sholom of Ontario

See you in the fall.

Second Session Sunday

Hebrew school is on summer break at Temple Sholom of Ontario. We will continue in the fall hold classes virtually on Sundays starting at 10:00am PT. There will be two sessions, 40 minutes each, with a 10 minute break in between.

Details will follow soon.

The first session will focus on Hebrew reading and prayers. We will read from the week's Torah portion using a Chumash and an online site. Besides the main prayers used in our services, we will also learn Torah and Haftarah blessings.

The second session will be a general learning session of that weekly sedrah/portion. We will also discuss notable Jewish personalities, from celebrities to prophets and kings. There will also be special topics such as gossip and evolution.

Miller Intro to Judaism Program

**Due to increased interest, we are starting a new course that will be finished by Rosh Hashanah. The second session will begin immediately following the first. If you are interested in joining, please let us know.

If you're thinking of converting to Judaism: Completion of the Intro Program fulfills the learning requirements for conversion of the Rabbinical Assembly of America. Once you finish the course requirements and secure a sponsoring rabbi, you are eligible to become officially part of the Jewish People.

If you're already Jewish: Whether you were born Jewish but never quite learned what it’s all about, you’re back after a long hiatus, or you’re just looking for a deeper understanding of your heritage, most of us could use a bit of a refresher. Jews from all walks of life enroll in the program: from people who had a Jewish day school education to those whose strongest connection was the annual box of matza on the kitchen counter.

More details to follow. Please let us know if you're interested. Application is attached below or reply with request for more information

Tish’a B’Av 2022 / תִּשְׁעָה בְּאָב 5782

The Ninth of Av ✡️

Tish'a B'Av for Hebrew Year 5782 begins at sundown on Saturday, 6 August 2022 and ends at nightfall on Sunday, 7 August 2022.

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.
