Intergenerational Rosh Chodesh Circle

Reset and renew in the ancient ritual of Rosh Chodesh, the celebration of the New Moon. Join a group of female-identified people to explore the monthly moon holiday and celebrate a minor holiday about Love. Together, we will learn and sing and explore the significance of the 15th day of the month of Av — Tu B’Av — for our bodies and souls. The month of Av holds a delicate balance of destruction, grief, love, and hope.

We will create a community space to honor our paths, set new intentions, and learn from one another’s wisdom. We invite women, femmes, and female-identified people of all ages to join in this special night of warmth, love and power.

Rosh Chodesh, the first day of each Jewish month, is historically associated with women’s renewal and celebration. Today, groups convening on this day offer a space in time for reimagining the holiday, learning, ritual, spiritual exploration and marking life’s passages.

Tickets are sliding scale $5 – $10 online and $10 at the door. Online registration will close one hour before the program starts. No one turned away for lack of funds.
