RS Women: Rosh Chodesh: New Moon Gatherings

Judaism follows a lunar calendar; hence our months and holidays are tied to the rhythm of the moon. Each new moon ushers in a new Jewish month, or Rosh Chodesh.

Jews celebrate Rosh Chodesh with additional liturgy and Torah readings. It has also become custom, or minhog, for Jewish women to gather and celebrate the new moon. These groups are simply known as Rosh Chodesh Groups. Women celebrate through prayer, Torah study, song, art, and meaningful discussion.
