This Month: The Origins of Rosh Chodesh

Come and explore the origins of Rosh Chodesh! Why is considered to be a women's holiday? Why are we so fascinated by the moon? This month we will do a deep dive into some of the traditional and contemporary liturgy for Rosh Chodesh, stories and we will even do a craft (no artistic talent necessary). We looking forward to seeing you there.

Marcia Tatz Wollner will guide this month's learning.

Be sure to RSVP to Beth by email or call her at 619 697-6001, ext. 108.

 

Bring a little nosh…

Everyone is encouraged to bring a something to share. All items must be new/sealed, need to be dairy, pareve, vegetarian, and have a hecksher (kosher symbol). Items that indicate that they are vegan do not need a hecksher. A little wine is also most welcome as long as it is domestic.

Would you like to host Rosh Chodesh in your home?

About Rosh Chodesh:

The first of each Jewish month—the celebration of the new moon, its slender crescent barely visible in the night sky—is a day historically associated with women’s renewal and celebration. In recent decades, Rosh Chodesh has become an occasion for Jewish women to gather for learning, ritual, and spiritual exploration, and to mark life passages.

A Rosh Chodesh group can provide a unique opportunity for women to share experiences. Talking about the joys and challenges of relationships with significant others, family and friends; the need for a spiritual dimension in our day-to-day lives; experiences with death and mourning; our Jewish upbringing, choice to be Jewish or grappling with the questions of those who are experiencing an inter-religious relationship–all are potential themes to explore. Sharing our unique stories allows each of us to broaden our own knowledge while creating a bond between group members.

We hope to have women of all ages. We believe that our diversity will be our greatest strength and allow us to learn and grow from one another. Our Rosh Chodesh meets (almost) monthly and offers women an exclusive and meaningful opportunity.
