Rosh Chodesh Group (Iyar)

Rosh Chodesh Group

Our Rosh Chodesh group has been meeting for 15 years in members’ homes with a mix of “founding” and newer members. We open each meeting with an introductory poem or reading, blessings for candle-lighting and wine, a summary of the month’s holidays and historic events that occurred during the month, and the bio of an interesting woman who died during the month. Then we get to know each other through introductions and move on to a presentation or discussion. For the past four years we’ve read and discussed short stories written by Jewish women in America, Israel and Latin America.



Contact: Lynn Magid Lazar for stories, PDF's and address of the meeting.

 

Celebrate Shavuot

Celebrate Shavuot

Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period, the Omer, between Passover and Shavuot. One of the three pilgrimage holidays mentioned in the Torah, it celebrates both the harvest of the first fruits and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.
