Rosh Chodesh Group (Elul)

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.
