Rosh Chodesh literally means “head of the month,” referring to the New Moon that begins each month in the Hebrew calendar. The traditional association for women may derive from a linkage between the lunar cycle and a women’s body cycles.
Makom's Rosh Chodesh Women’s Circle is a sacred space for women of our community to come together and connect about what is going on for us emotionally and spiritually. As an ancient Jewish ritual of marking the passing of time by the new moon and constellations, we frame our conversations and self-reflection around these same energetic themes and observe how they have shaped so much of the Jewish calendar.
