Women in Green organized a reading of the Book of Eichah (Lamentations) on the eve of the Jewish fast day of Tisha B’av, in front of the American Consulate in Jerusalem, on August 4, 2014. An estimated 1500 people took part in the reading and later marched around the walls of the Old City. Tisha B’av commemorates the destruction of the First and Second Temples.
