Rise and Shine!
Did you know that in the morning blessings once included thanks to God for “not making an ignoramus?” Susan Keller will talk about this and more as we explore what Judaism has to say about waking up, a follow-up to the Rosh Chodesh session Susan led earlier this year about Judaism and sleep.

This month will be hosted at the home of Debbie Mishek who will also guide our learning. More details are available on our website.
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 group plans to meet monthly, in various homes, and offer women an exclusive and meaningful opportunity.
Whether you’d like to host one month or have a suggestion for a discussion topic just let us know.
