Join the women of Kol Tikvah for the observance of Rosh Chodesh, the new Hebrew month. Our Director of Lifelong Learning will facilitate these spiritual celebrations in accordance with the tradition of Rosh Chodesh being a holiday exclusively for women.
Music, sharing, study and refreshments combine to make a warm and nurturing experience.
Today, across the USA and all around the world, many women get together on Rosh Chodesh for study and prayer, for socializing and spiritual renewal. Our own Kol Tikvah Rosh Chodesh Group is now in its fourth year. We meet once a month for a short service, followed on a different book of the Hebrew Bible.According to the Mishnah, Jewish women were given Rosh Chodesh (the Festival of the New Moon) as a reward for their refusal to participate in the Golden Calf episode. Therefore, it is a custom for Jewish women not to do certain types of work on this day.
Please note that the Rosh Chodesh group is open to women only.
