Rosh Chodesh Group
Rosh Chodesh, which literally means “head of the month,” has traditionally been considered a special holiday for women. According to legend, the holiday was a reward given to the women of Israel because they refused to surrender their jewelry for the creation of the Golden Calf. Because of their righteousness, the women were exonerated from working on Rosh Chodesh. In modern times, women gather to study, explore spirituality, share a meal, discuss topics of interest to Jewish women and work for social change.
This lively and diverse group, led by Cantor Shulie, meets once a month as close as possible to the beginning of the new Hebrew month. Activities and discussion topics are selected based on the participants’ interests. For more information, contact the Beth Sholom office at 301-663-3437 or Cantor Shulie.
