Rosh Chodesh Circle

The Rosh Chodesh Circle is a women's group that celebrates the New Moon by meeting as close to Rosh Chodesh as possible (the head of the Jewish month).  It is traditional for women to get together on Rosh Chodesh, welcome in the new month, and limit their labor tasks in honor of the day.
Our circle will usually light a candle for the month, make kiddush over the new month, have a seudah (meal), read some tekinnes (ancient women's prayers), and study.

Check the events calendar on www.makormiriam.org for dates and times and plan ahead for Rosh Chodesh.  This day is a beautiful day for women to rejoice in the cycle of the moon and the passing of Jewish time.  Come and be a part - this day is for you!
