Rosh Chodesh Volunteers 2021

Rosh Chodesh, or head of the month, celebrates the new Jewish month and the appearance of the new moon. The connection between Rosh Chodesh and women dates back to biblical times when tradition tells us women refused to participate in the sin of the Golden Calf and were thus rewarded with Rosh Chodesh. According to kabbalistic teachings, women share a special relationship with the moon, and as such they have special reason to celebrate Rosh Chodesh.  Each month a Sisterhood member will announce the Rosh Chodesh with a personal reading to celebrate women and share this observance with the community. 

We are looking for volunteers to be Rosh Chodesh readers throughout the year.  The reader will have a conversation with Cantor Aviva about two weeks before the Rosh Chodesh date.  During this conversation, the Cantor will talk about the specifics of the month and will give guidance as the reader selects or writes a passage.   If interested in volunteering, please sign up below.

For questions, please contact Becky Ristow.
