Wednesday, February 26th, 7:00 p.m.
We invite women of all ages and stages to join us. Our gatherings are always fun, insightful, a chance to connect with others, and an opportunity for spiritual growth.
It’s All in the Family!
This “family history” project, led by Lili Feingold, will be interactive, engaging, and more. Stories will be shared and we’ll discuss the importance of “avotaynu,” our ancestors, and you’ll be creating something memorable to take home.
What you’ll need to bring:
Participants need to bring copies of two different family photos of individuals or groups. Sepia-toned is best. Photos should be 4×6 inches or smaller. Any copy store can make color copies and reduce the size, if needed. You can also scan and print the photos at home.
No photos? No problem
In the event you don’t have photos, we will have some on hand for you to use. They’ll represent well-known Jewish figures.
Need some help?
Our tech gal, Ellen Lorang, is here to help. Ellen has graciously offered that if you bring your photos to TIS by February 24th, she’ll be happy to scan and print them in sepia-tones for the project. Simply bring your photos to TIS and leave them with Beth.
There is no charge but please let us know you’ll be joining us. You may email Beth at email@example.com or call the office. This month we will gather at TIfereth Israel Synagogue. Guests are welcome to bring a dairy or pareve appetizer or dessert (sealed and clearly marked kosher), or a beverage or domestic wine to share.
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.
Sometimes we’re able to share materials with our guests and readers from past Rosh Chodesh gatherings. The links below will take you to pdf documents that our learning guides have shared. We hope you enjoy.
