Welcome moon lovers! Rosh Chodesh gatherings are a Jewish spin on your typical Western new moon circle. Rosh Chodesh marks the beginning of the new month in the Hebrew calendar, which starts with the new moon. Traditionally, Rosh Chodesh was a space for women/menstruating folks to gather together, connect, and learn from one another.
At our Rosh Chodesh (or RoCho, for short) Nissan gathering, we discuss the spiritual energies of the upcoming month and the holiday of Passover, meditate, move mindfully, and share our wisdom with each other. All gender identities are welcome!
This event is open to the public - not just members of Congregation T'chiyah!
For our gathering, please bring:
- A mug, if you'd like some tea
- A journal and writing utensil
- A cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor (we are striving to have some meditation cushions, but are unsure if they will arrive in time!)
📝 PLEASE REVIEW OUR PROTOCOLS BEFORE YOU RSVP:
All attendees must be up-to-date on a complete course of COVID vaccinations, as their eligibility permits.
Masking and social distancing are required.
We will enforce a capacity limit of 36 attendees to allow for adequate social distancing. RSVPs are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome.
No food will be served. (Those who need to snack can leave the chapel room and do so, as needed.)
A medical-grade HEPA air filter rated for our room's area will be in use to ensure air circulation.
