This Month: Making Space 

It's almost Passover. Many of us will be retelling and remembering the most famous narrative of the Jewish people, our path from bondage in Egypt (in Hebrew, Mitzrayim, literally translates to “narrow space”) to freedom. This holiday and this month, Nissan, is an opportunity to reflect on how we move through narrowness to spaciousness. Join us for an evening of community and connection to the story of freedom and how we can apply it to our own lives. We'll get deep with these themes through guided meditation, put pen to paper for a writing meditation, and share snacks with friends. See you there!

This month's Rosh Chodesh will be led by Alison Laichter. Read more about her at and check out her explanation of Rosh Chodesh on BimBam!

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.
