A little about Rosh Hodesh:
The Jewish calendar is based on the lunar cycle and each Hebrew month has its own name. Towards the beginning of the moon’s cycle, it appears as a thin crescent which is the signal for a new Jewish month. Rosh Hodesh, (literally, Head of the Month) is the celebration of the new Jewish month, and has long been honored by Jewish women for a variety of reasons ranging from the correlations between women and the lunar cycle, to the opportunity to reclaim a sliver of spiritual space. Today, Rosh Hodesh has become a time for women to study and learn together. We invite you to join us as we learn from five extraordinary Jewish women in our community and their fascinating career paths, through our new Rosh Hodesh Series.
*All are welcome to join us regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, Jewish knowledge, or ethnic background.
All events in this series are held at Hillel UW from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. with refreshments after the presentation.
