Lilith Salon

First Monday of each month at 6:30pm

Join us to discuss compelling articles in the “independent, Jewish, and frankly feminist magazine,” Lilith which reports on topics of “family politics, Jewish hair, race and reconciliation, new liturgies, good advice, fabulous fiction, parenting now, marriage equality, feminist philanthropy, sex, food—and so much more.”

Lilith Salon meets the first Monday of each month. The selected articles for each month’s discussion will be emailed to you in advance. Each lady is encouraged to order food and drink at their own expense. Conversation, of course, is free and quite stimulating. Email us for more information and to get on the email list for updates.

Rosh Chodesh

VP of Religious Living, Becky Ristow

Erev Shabbat Service closest to New Month

Rosh Chodesh, or head of the month, celebrates the new Jewish month and the appearance of the new moon. The connection between Rosh Chodesh and women dates back to biblical times when tradition tells us women refused to participate in the sin of the Golden Calf and were thus rewarded with Rosh Chodesh. According to kabbalistic teachings, women share a special relationship with the moon, and as such they have special reason to celebrate Rosh Chodesh. Each month a Sisterhood member will announce the Rosh Chodesh with a personal reading to celebrate women and share this observance with the community.

We are looking for volunteers to be Rosh Chodesh readers throughout the year. Readers work with Cantor Aviva Marer to incorporate passages, poem, or writings for the monthly presentation.
