Rosh Chodesh Tu B’shevat

Wed Jan 19 | 7p
On Zoom

Rosh Chodesh is the opportunity to notice the new Hebrew month, when the moon is absent from the sky and therefore possibility abounds. Rosh Chodesh is generally celebrated by women around the world.

This month, instead of exploring a female of the bible, we will celebrate a holiday within the month of Shevat, called Tu B’shvat. Tu B’shvat, among other things, celebrates the birthday of the trees. We will explore the necessity of caring for our trees and our greater world as well as ourselves.

All female identified individuals are welcome. Register here.
