In the wake of the vandalism that occurred at Nessah Synagogue last Shabbat, the Beverly Hills Persian synagogue is holding a fast day today to commemorate the Torah scrolls destroyed during the break in.

Nessah began the fast at 5:34 a.m. today and it will continue until 5:10 p.m. tonight. The community will recite Tehillim (Psalms) at 3 p.m., followed by Mincha and  Ma’ariv (afternoon and evening services) at 4 p.m.

In addition, the synagogue will host a Solidarity Shabbat Dec. 21 from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. For more information, visit Nessah’s website.
