Rosh Hodesh Gathering 3/19/2018


Rosh Hodesh Gathering


Monday, March 19th, 7:45pm 

Hi all - 

I’m trying something new and am hoping some of you would like to be a part of it. For many years I led women’s Rosh Hodesh groups, in a bunch of different settings. Since moving to Sharon, I have missed the special bonds and network that this type of group provides. So, I’ve decided to try and start one here! 

The format of the group is flexible. While many discussions use Jewish texts as a jumping off point, some are loosely connected to upcoming holidays or issues of concern in the news - I have also had women lead sessions using movement, art and music. It all depends on what hidden (or not so hidden) talents we can uncover among the women who participate. 

One of my favorite things about a Rosh Hodesh group is the power that it has to connect women in so many different places in life. So, come for the learning, the new faces, or the tea and cookies, but stay for the new friendships.

You are receiving this email because someone thought that a Rosh Hodesh group might interest you, but we want to include as many women as possible. If you know someone who you think would be interested, please invite then to participate. The more the merrier. 

Our first meeting is Monday, March 19 at 7:45 (right after minyan). Excited to see lots of you there. Please RSVP with the form below.

High School Torah Hangout

Monthly, 1st & 3rd Mondays:
Continues Nov 20th, Dec 4th & 18th, 7pm
AT Starbucks, Cobb Corner

What's the deal with Jews and tattoos? To really keep kosher, should we all just be vegetarians? Why can't use our phones on Shabbat, if that's what we think is more relaxing? How do we sort through all the media messages about sex, beauty, and body image? Where do we even look for answers to these questions? Our class/club will meet to discuss how we can bring Jewish texts & values into conversations with these and other important questions.
