Beth Am Women Rosh Chodesh

Beth Am Women invites you to participate in fun, creative and dynamic Rosh Chodesh celebrations just for women each month at the appearance of the new moon. The Jewish calendar provides a wonderful way to celebrate the cycles of time and change on Rosh Chodesh, the first (and sometimes second) day of each Hebrew month. Rosh Chodesh comes to us when the moon is once again renewed--a barely visible sliver of light.

Traditionally, Rosh Chodesh was a women's holiday which has been reclaimed in recent decades as a time for women to have a day (or at least a few hours) off from work in which to celebrate, learn and interact with other Jewish women in a friendly, supportive environment.

Rosh Chodesh events at Beth Am are relevant to each month's Jewish themes, incorporate the arts in all forms, and encourage learning, discussion and personal stories in an atmosphere of mutual respect and friendship. For more information, email Lisa.

Locations and times vary. View the BAW Rosh Chodesh calendar of visit the Beth Am Women Calendar for this month’s events.
