Rosh Chodesh Group — Sh'vat (via Zoom)

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 6 Sh'vat 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: Betolin-Sherman, Dalia, “Circle of Friends,” trans. from Hebrew Ilana Kurshan, in Ilanot Review, winter 2015. Ethiopian-Israeli author writes about cliques and discrimination in an Israeli elementary school.
Discussion leader: Elizabeth Gordon
