Sun Feb 3, 2:30 PM Rosh Chodesh at EncounterPoint in Edgewater

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.

Please push aside the cold and we'll warm up together in less than 3 weeks. 

Adar is the month to welcome joy into your life…and to celebrate Purim!

This is a month to ramp up happiness…

 … a time to come play, seek humor, and peace out of our usual analytical minds.  It’s a month to manifest the power of joy, to connect with everybody and to make a dwelling place for the Divine in each of our lives.

(Don't you think that sounds like something great to share in our Rosh Chodesh Circle?!)

RSVP by Wed., Jan. 30 ---   I’ll email parking passes to all who are coming.

Facilitator:  Carol Sherman

 PS – If you give me feedback on the type of activities you’ve enjoyed the most during our Rosh Chodesh meetings and I’ll see about working some into this month’s program along with Rachel’s basic format.

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.

This is a members only group, if you’d like to join us, you need only become a member of Makom Shalom. For more information about the location of this month's Rosh Chodesh, please e-mail Jaqi at
