- Shabbat & Holy Days
Join the women of Ruach Israel for a time of sharing and prayer at a special Rosh Chodesh meeting as Cheryl has offered to host us for a matzah baking event at her home:
When: Sunday, March 25 from 2:00-5:00, with the option to stay for a light dinner
Where: Cheryl’s home in NH (Please contact the office for exact address & directions)
Weather permitting, we will be outside to bake matzah in her wood fired oven. If it’s still cold and snowy, we will be indoors!
Also, children are welcome to come along!
This is a time for women to connect on a more intimate level, and get to share and focus on praying for each other. Centering it around Rosh Chodesh brings it into a Jewish context that is the obvious foundation for a women’s group. The special connection between women and Rosh Chodesh harks way back to the episode of the Golden Calf, when the women declined to participate in the “fundraising” effort and refused to surrender their jewelry for use in making the idol. As a reward, they were given Rosh Chodesh as a day which they observe more than the men.
