Rosh Chodesh Tammuz on Sunday, June 14

Join us for Congregation P’nai Tikvah Women’s Rosh Chodesh Tammuz on Sunday, June 14 at 7pm. 

Here are some insights from Ritualwell:

The first of each Jewish month—the celebration of the new moon, its slender crescent barely visible in the night sky—is a day historically associated with women’s renewal and celebration.

In recent decades, Rosh Chodesh has become an occasion for Jewish women to gather for learning, ritual, and spiritual exploration, and to mark life passages. Rosh Chodesh groups, meeting monthly, offer a women’s space in time. (Some men’s gatherings have begun as well, sometimes associated with kiddush levanah, celebrating the coming full moon.)
