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.
Passover in the Time of Social Distancing
As we head into Nisan, the month we celebrate Passover, we may have to be creative in how we celebrate while honoring social distancing. Tonight let’s talk about how we can be grateful for what we have and how we can start new traditions that enrich our souls and sustain us during these challenging times. Let’s learn some music, share some recipes, and be creative.
Debbie Mishek will guide our conversation and learning while welcoming us “into” her home. In addition, Cantor Hanan Leberman is sending a special video recording to be shared with our participants.

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.
