Calling all Shomrei Torah women:
Come and join our Rosh Chodesh women’s group. It is a custom for women to gather for celebration and sisterhood every month at the time of the new moon. The meetings may be at a private home, or at an outdoor setting (under the actual moon!–weather permitting).
Each month will focus on a specific Jewish spiritual theme (from Kabbalah, mussar (Jewish ethical teachings), or a Biblical source). We will meditate, chant, sing, dance, study, and discuss in order to deepen our connection to the sacred, to ourselves, to each other and to the community.
We hope you will join us! Please contact Alissa Hirshfeld-Flores atAlissa Flores firstname.lastname@example.org or Rabbinic Pastor Judith Goleman at email@example.com for more information.

Alissa Hirshfeld-Flores (certified Jewish Spiritual Director)
What did you hear when we were all at Sinai?
June 14, 2013, 6:15 pm service
In honor of Pride month, Andrew Ramer will join us for Shabbat service and a discussion about the increasing participation of women and LGBT people in the Jewish world. He writes: “On an endangered planet… it is the role of stories to hold us, guide us, and sustain us. In this evening of storytelling and story sharing, we will have a chance to wander in and out of our core texts and share elements of our own callings to Tikkun Olam.”
Andrew Ramer is a writer, teacher, and maggid (story teller) whose work is grounded in traditional Jewish values and texts. He is the author of numerous books including Two Flutes Playing, Angel Answers and Revelations for a New Millennium. His most recent publication is Queering the Text: Biblical, Medieval, and Modern Jewish Stories.
