Rosh Chodesh Group — Iyar (via Zoom)

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 1 Iyar 5781

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Our Rosh Chodesh group, founded by Ruth Reidbord, has been meeting in members’ homes for more than 18 years. We open with introductions, candle-lighting and wine blessings. The heart of the meeting is a lively and provocative discussion of a short story, essay, memoir or midrash (creative interpretation of a Biblical or Talmudic story) written by a Jewish woman, occasionally including a Skype call with the author. We close with a song and refreshments. All Sinai women are welcome! Please join us for learning, community, and inspiration.

Reading: Morris, Mary, “The Moon Garden,” in The Lifeguard Stories, 1998, pp. 136-156. A woman whose past is in Holocaust-era Europe is unhappy with her daughter’s choice of fiancé and plans for a garden wedding.
Discussion leader: Natalie Sumetsky
