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 are provided with an introduction and can select a passage, poem, or writing of her choice.
All are welcome to join Sisterhood study with the Rabbi on designated Wednesday mornings throughout the year!
Join us to discuss compelling articles in the “independent, Jewish and frankly feminist magazine,” Lilith.
Please join us for our next Lilith Salon on February 7th at 6:30pm at George's Neighborhood Grille located at 73& Shadleland Avenue.
IHC’s Sisterhood continues its tradition of holding reading group discussions on Lilith, an independent Jewish-American, feminist magazine issued quarterly. Susan Weidman Schneider founded Lilith in 1976 “to foster discussion of Jewish women’s issues.”
At 6:30 p.m. Oct. 4 at Dawson’s on Main, 1464 Main Street, we will discuss the summer issue, focusing on the articles “When Your Work Crowds Out Your Actual Life” and “These Jewish Holidays Brought to You by Feminism.” Expect to explore questions like these:
Does daily life or work consume more of your time and energy? Are there any practical suggestions – like delegating or asking for what you need – that could improve things?
Is there a Bible story involving a woman that bothered you or that you wish went differently? Is there any part of a Jewish celebration or ritual that has made you cringe, or that could be changed by adding a female perspective?
We will rotate locations for future discussions. Other meeting dates will be on Dec. 6 and Feb. 7.
