Rosh Hodesh


Due to the need to shelter-in-place, we will not gather in-person to celebrate Rosh Hodesh. We look forward to celebrating together as soon as it is safe to do so.

    If shelter-in-place is lifted:

Thursday, April 23
Join us for Rosh Hodesh Iyar as we collectively create an altar cloth. We are using Rabbi Kohenet Jill Hammer’s Wheel of the Year as a pattern. No sewing experience needed, just bring your reading glasses and an open heart. All women welcome.

An Invitation…

From the Women’s Rosh Hodesh Group of Temple Beth El

Each month we come together at the New Moon to deepen our understanding of our own spirituality and relationship with Judaism as women—through literature, scripture, art, and music. We create sacred space, midrash, song, and study, as we make friends and strengthen our identity as Jewish Women, and take a moment to fill our heart, minds, and souls. Please visit us at https://groups.io/g/RoshHodesh.

To receive informational email announcements, please send a blank email to RoshHodesh+subscribe@groups.io. Visit us at https://groups.io/g/RoshHodesh or call Chai Bryce at 831-475-3313.

Women worldwide celebrate the ancient tradition of Rosh Hodesh in a variety of ways. At Temple Beth El, women have been planning these spiritually deepening, creatively satisfying events for over 20 years.

Each month we come together to deepen our understanding of our own spirituality and relationship with Judaism as women—through literature, scripture, creative arts, music, and food. We create a sacred space to carry on this ancient tradition of taking a moment to fill our heart, minds, and souls.

Rosh Hodesh takes place at the new moon, which is the beginning of each Hebrew month. We take turns signing up for any month(s) we would like to facilitate. Those of us who have planned these evenings have found that this process is as rewarding an experience as the event itself—if not more. Generally two to three women work together to facilitate an evening with a theme that corresponds to the meaning of the month on the Hebrew calendar in an engaging atmosphere with the space to explore these themes globally and personally.

All women interested are welcome to attend and bring friends to any of these events. Temple membership is not a requirement. Please check out our online community: Temple Beth El Women's Rosh Hodesh Group.
