Beth Am Women, Rosh Chodesh Av: “Magical Mystical Alef Bet -- Hebrew Letters & Calligraphy"

The month of Av is filled with mourning and celebration: the fast day of Tisha B’Av (9th of Av), commemorating the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem, and Tu B’Av, (15th of Av), celebrating love and connection. Av gets its name from the first 2 letters of the Hebrew alphabet: Alef and Bet. Tonight we’ll explore the magic of the Hebrew letters, learn some of the meanings of each letter and what makes the letters of the Torah special, and try our hands at some beginning Hebrew calligraphy, as calligrapher Lisa Rauchwerger teaches us to write our names in Hebrew script. No experience necessary. All women are welcome.

For more information or to RSVP, contact Lisa at (877) 321-7925.

Rosh Chodesh is a program of Beth Am Women.
