Judaism follows a lunar calendar; hence our months and holidays are tied to the rhythm of the moon. Each new moon ushers in a new Jewish month, or Rosh Chodesh.
Jews celebrate Rosh Chodesh with additional liturgy and Torah readings. It has also become custom, or minhog, for Jewish women to gather and celebrate the new moon. These groups are simply known as Rosh Chodesh Groups. Women celebrate through prayer, Torah study, song, art, and meaningful discussion.
We will be discussing Btselem Elohim, in God’s image - How do we see ourselves as women created in God’s image. Discussion led by Ellen Poster, Fran Martin, and Linda Karp at the home of Fran Martin. RSVP to Julia Engel.
