♦ Rosh Chodesh Group on October 5th on 7:30 PM


Rosh Chodesh is back and better than ever!! According to tradition, being exempt from work each Rosh Chodesh was a reward given to the women of Israel because they refused to surrender their jewelry for the creation of the Golden Calf.  Today Rosh Chodesh groups meet to learn, to explore spirituality, and to deepen relationships between members. We envision a broad list of topics and activities (the specific agenda will be determined by group members), for example:


- learning about Jewish communities in countries such as in Nigeria, where six Igbo synagogues were burned last year, or Kaifeng China, where there has been a Jewish community since the 10th century

- participating in a craft or activity related to a holiday

- discussing topics of special interest to women such as the role of Jewish women in promoting women's reproductive rights.


Please join us at Bet Chaverim on Tuesday, October 5th at 7:30. We will follow current Covid restrictions.  Call/text Lynn (443-310-7357) or Ivy (443-621-9573) if you have any questions or would like further information.
