Rosh Chodesh Group
Next Meeting: Saturday,
June 16, 7-9pm (30 Sivan)
Chodesh is an ancient tradition on the Jewish path,
and a beautiful opportunity for women to come together
in strength and song on the new moon. This intentional
women's circle will focus on the theme and flavor
of the month. This lay-led, drop-in group meets monthly
with the intention of being supportive, creative,
grounding, fun, and soulful.
