The liturgy we propose (page 1024) consists of Torah study and memorial prayers and, hence, is appropriate regardless of where one stands on this fundamental question. Indeed, this liturgy is appropriate for any day of the year except, ironically, for Tisha B'Av, since it features the type of Torah study prohibited on that day of national mourning . . ¶ With this service, we aim to bring merit to the souls of the deceased and to implore the Holy One, blessed is He, always to remember both the individuals and the holy communities who were murdered and destroyed in the conflagration that consumed six n;million of our people.
