Rosh Hodesh

There is a legend told that when the Israelites came to create the golden calf, the men asked the women to give them all their jewellery and gold to be melted down for the calf. The women refused to supply their jewels and as a reward a special festival was given to them: the festival of Rosh Chodesh, the celebration of the new moon.

A number of women in our congregation expressed an interest in participating in a Rosh Chodesh group and began meetings in 1999. We decided to hold the events on the day of the new moon and as such, the day of the week changes every month.

The form, structure and content of the group has evolved as we come to know one another better and discover common interests and pursuits. We begin with a short prayer to welcome the new month. Followed by a discussion about topics of interest led by a different person each meeting.

All Rosh Chodesh meetings begin at 8:00pm. These meetings are now being held via Zoom. For details, please call the office on 9389 6444 or email before the meeting to receive the link.

We have a broad range of ages and perspectives in the group which is warm, welcoming and open. We would love to have anyone who is interested or curious come and join us at any or all of our gatherings.
