We are grateful to all those who helped to make this Tisha B'Av special: Alan Feder, Harris Marks & Dr. Yehoshua Livnat for their reading of Megillat Eicha; Rabbi Aviad Bodner for his informative class on changes to the Nachem prayer; the members of the Stanton Street Synagogue who joined us during the day; and the very many who participated in our services and classes throughout the fast.
